Research group for the ethnographic inquiry into ecologies, infrastructures, bodies and knowledges
Laboratory: Anthropology of Environment | Human Relations

Josefine Raasch

My research interests are in the field of Social Anthropology of Science and Technology, in Science and Technology Studies and in Education. These fields provide me with the methodological, theoretical and practical inspiration to follow my curiosity about knowledge practices in human-environment relations. I like to ask how situation are generative, what is been configured in them and how.

I obtained my PhD in Science and Technology Studies in Melbourne, Australia, and my Magister degree in European Ethnology and Education (Berlin, Germany). I have also a diploma as a physiotherapist from Humboldt University Berlin. I have worked at Ruhr University Bochum as a postdoctoral researcher, have taught at Humboldt University, Swinburne University of Technology and University of Vienna and I am involved in the activities of the Laboratory: Anthropology of Environment | Human Relations. Currently, I am working as a Learning Designer for Executive Education at the ESMT Berlin.
