Julius-Cezar MacQuarie

Julius-Cezar MacQuarie, PhD graduated from the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology, Central European University. He is a nocturnal anthropologist and writes on nightwork and precarity. He founded the Nightworkshop, a laboratory to research nightwork in cities. Previously, he carried out night ethnographies in several European cities (Budapest, Istanbul, London, Milan, Prague and Sofia). During the one-year-long night ethnography in London’s New Spitalfields fruit, vegetable and flower market, between 2014 and 2015, he laboured next to his co-nightworkers, some of which appear in this photo montage, Invisible Faces of the Nocturnal Market. His research focuses on Romania’s siliconised cities, such as București, Brașov, Cluj-Napoca, Iași, and Timișoara, which attract both low-income workers and disposed urban dwellers. As a Migrant Voice (UK) Ambassador, he makes audio-visual stories about invisible migrant nightworkers for media outlets and public anthropology.
