"After completing my studies of film and literature (FAU Erlangen, FU Berlin) I began to dedicate myself to the more cultural-scientific and science-historic field of physical anthropology around 1900 while working for a sociological research project at the University of Paderborn. I received a grant for attending the graduate’s college "Identity and difference. Gender construction and inter-culturality" at the University of Trier and will now commence to complete my Ph.D. thesis "Between Dissolution and Fixation. On the constitution of 'race' and 'gender' in the physical anthropology around 1900"where I analyze the medial effects of different anthropological procedures of identification.
In 1998 I co-founded the research forum "Nach dem Film" (after the film) and since then I have been working as editor and co-publisher for the internet magazine ( of the same name published in this context. My publications and editing work include works on feminist film theory, Judith Butlers’ deconstructivistic procedures, Foucault’s event-related discourse analysis, on screenings and visualizations of physical anthropology, on tears in cinema, on the event IMAX and on the topic skin (Konkursbuch 41 HAUT).
I live in Berlin and was participated in the conception and organization of the thealit - lab Kooky for 2004/2005."
