Shahram Khosravi, an Iranian, is Professor of Social Anthropology at the University of Stockholm. He was an illegal immigrant in 1988 and used this experience as the starting point for his studies on migrants, forced deportation and asylum seekers. He has written various essays, including: Young and Defiant in Tehran (2008); Precarious Lives: Waiting and Hope in Iran (2017) for the University of Pennsylvania Press; and After Deportation: Ethnographic Perspectives (Palgrave, 2017). Io sono confine (elèuthera, 2019) is his first text published in Italian. The book is unusual as it intertwines a personal story with ethnographic writing, a self-ethnography that gives us a decidedly original perspective on one of the major trends in modern life: that of illegal migration, which places the self within the social and geopolitical context.
