Carola von der Dick

I am a PhD candidate in the Global Studies Program, conducted jointly by the Universidad del Salvador, Buenos Aires, and Humboldt-University Berlin, and a member of the Laboratory Anthropology of Environment I Human Relations. In my current research, I am interested in how Participatory Art Based Research methods are used in Berlin school settings to re-imagine human-environment, human-object relations in the Anthropocene.

My research interests include feminist science and technology studies, multispecies ethnography, and politics of care. As a freelancer, I facilitate workshops on environmental education. Before returning to academia, I worked in the agroforestry project Sapucaia in the Northeast of Brazil. I studied Asia/Africa Regional Studies (B.A.) and European Ethnology (M.A.) in Berlin and Semarang, Indonesia.
