Evangelos works at the crossroads of anthropology and cultural production, studying music and art initiatives in the UK since 2005. He holds a PhD in social anthropology from the University of Edinburgh, and his doctoral research explored the intersection of ‘Do-it-Yourself’ (DiY) music practices and ethics in Glasgow. Several publications have resulted from this study. Evangelos is currently developing a research project on manifestos in contemporary cultural production. In July 2019, he organised at Goldsmiths a 2-day panel on this topic for the London Conference in Critical Thought, while a book chapter that charts the relationship between manifestos, DiY music and the cultural industries is forthcoming in 2020. Evangelos is editor of Collaborative Intimacies in Music and Dance: Anthropologies of Sound and Movement (Berghahn 2017; paperback version forthcoming August 2020), a book that examines music and dance from a cross-cultural perspective. His latest publication is an article for the Journal of Cultural Economy, as part of a Special Issue he is co-editing, tentatively entitled ‘Crafting Values: Economies, Ethics and Aesthetics of Artistic Valuation’. At present, Evangelos serves as associate editor of Arts and International AffairsOccasionally, he plays vinyl records on EH-FM, Edinburgh’s foremost independent radio station.
