Student Assistants

Working under the roof of CARMAH as a student assistant to Sharon Macdonald and the team brings with it a refreshing variety of tasks. Alongside the management of our library and the maintenance of the site you’re reading this text on, I aid the researchers in the diverse aftermath of field research and assist in the organization of CARMAH’S events.

I’m a graduate student at the Institute for European Ethnology. Questions of presentation and representation, of knowledge production and its transfers, and the role of technologies herein attract my anthropological gaze. The opportunity to support CARMAH provides not only for my skills to be expanded through inspiring collaboration with the team, but also to join in an exciting upgrowth process in the vibrant city of Berlin.
