Anastasia has engaged in multi-sited, multi-method and comparative ethnographic research in the United States, Denmark, Germany, Greece and Cyprus and has widely published those findings on issues of migration and return migration; the second generation and ethnicity; space and place; transnationalism and identity; culture and memory; gender and feminism; home and belonging; emotion and narrativity; ageing, youth, health mobilities, care and trauma. Within the scope of gender studies, ethnic, migration and cultural studies, her research interests are situated across the areas of critical migration and diaspora studies, the cultural politics of emotions, space, place, identities, and memory, ageing, the governmentality of multiculturalism and the nation, critical race studies and new social movements. In her research agenda she seeks to interrogate constructions and limitations to cultural citizenship and belonging with the rise of contemporary exclusions in understanding how both states and social subjects shape social relations.
