Trinity College Dublin

Beatrice Scutaru is Assistant Professor of European History at Trinity College Dublin. She specialises in transnational history, with a focus on migration, childhood, and the Cold War. She is particularly interested in the movement of people, ideas and ideologies across national borders, on how these take place and the experiences of the people involved (i.e., migrants, refugees, students, academic exchanges, tourists). Beatrice’s current project examines the global history of refugees in Eastern Europe during the Cold War.

Before joining Trinity, Beatrice was a Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Padua and worked as a Lecturer at Dublin City University and Maynooth University. Her research has been funded by various competitive international grant schemes (e.g., European Union Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, French Ministry of Education) and she collaborates in various international research projects and networks on the topics of migration and childhood.
