Anna Heitger

Anna Heitger I obtained my Master’s degree in Cultural and Social Anthropology at the University of Vienna and am currently a doctoral researcher at the Integrative Research Institute on Transformations of Human-Environment Systems (IRI THESys) at HU Berlin.

In the context of the research project Food4Future that aims at bringing together perspectives on nutrition, food production and sustainability, I investigate the social and cultural dimensions of food employing ethnographic and experimental methods.

I am interested in the intersection of the human and its Other, that is, the environment constituted by nonhuman and material entities, from an anthropological perspective. As modern technologies increasingly shape our lives as well as the environment and the emergent intra-actions, I integrate feminist science and technology studies into my analysis.
