Tal Adler

I am a Master’s student at the Institute of European Ethnology and an associate of CARMAH. I am especially interested in studying the role of minorities and migration in and for museums. As part of CARMAH’s ‘Representing Islam’ project, I conducted research on some of the current transformations taking place in Berlin’s museums as reactions to recent societal developments in the city, and looked at what is being done in order to create space in the museums for people of Arabic origin. I did this through longterm ethnographic fieldwork with the Multaka project, which you can read more about in the reflections. I am also interested in looking at public engagement in museums and with heritage in a global perspective, especially thought together with critical reflections on knowledge production in and beyond academia. On this subject, together with Christine Gerbich, I organised the workshop On Common Grounds? Researching Public Engagement of Museums and Heritage Sites.
