WS 2023/24: Gender and Migration (BA AM3/4)

Short Biography

From 2018 to 2023, I studied social and cultural anthropology at the University of Cologne. I wrote my master's thesis on Negotiating Menstruation and Modernity in
Cameroon: Anthropological Reflections on Discourses and Practices, for which I conducted two months of field research on the socio-cultural construction of menstruation in Yaoundé, Cameroon with Anglophone Cameroonians.

From 2021 to 2023, I also worked as a research assistant at the chair of Prof. Dr. Michaela Pelican at the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Cologne and as a tutor for the lecture Introduction to Social Anthropology in the winter semesters 2021/22 and 2022/23.

Before that, I worked as a student employee at the German Institute for Development Evaluation (DEval) from 2019 to 2021, where I was involved in the project Exit Processes in Development Cooperation.

From 2014 to 2018, I studied sociology (with a focus on social and cultural anthropology and a minor in philosophy) at the University of Konstanz. I wrote my bachelor's thesis in the research project Konstanz anders? Ethnographic explorations in refugee aid on the meaning of friendships.
