Mr Di Stefano''sresearch examines shifting concepts of home and belonging within the context of transnational migration, and extends contemporary notions of diaspora by examining the complex construction of affiliations between ethnic, national and sexual identities. His research proposes that the camera can function as an invaluable mediator of people, places and events in relation to narratives of belonging by operating at the register of a witnessing device to the trauma of displacement.
