Project Researchers

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, museum and heritage studies, tourism and popular culture research and the ethnography of emotions. Currently I am working on a research project as member of the Centre for Anthropological Research on Museums and Heritage (CARMAH), in which I apply the approaches of media and digital anthropology to foster our understanding of media practices and experiences at memory places and heritage sites in Berlin and Europe. As part of this research, I also lead (together with Sharon Macdonald) the DFG-funded project “Curating Digital Images: Ethnographic Perspectives on the Affordances of Digital Images in Heritage and Museum Contexts” (more information here).
