Christoph Bareither

I am Junior Professor of European Ethnology & Media Anthropology at the Department of European Ethnology at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. My research is concerned with the transformations of everyday practices and experiences enabled through digital technologies. I am especially interested in the fields of media and digital anthropology, science and technology studies, museum and heritage studies, tourism and popular culture research and the ethnography of emotions. My ethnographic monograph on violence in video games is available in Open Access here, for an English paper on the topic see here. Currently I am working on a new research project as member of the Centre for Anthropological Research on Museums and Heritage (CARMAH), in which I use approaches of media and digital anthropology as well as cultural studies and STS to foster our understanding of media practices and experiences at memory places and heritage sites in Berlin and Europe.
