I am Privatdozent and senior researcher at the Department of Social Anthropology and Cultural Studies (ISEK) of the University of Zurich and head of the Laboratory Popular Culture Studies. Currently, I am mainly working on political narratives and on the construction of Europe in non-European contexts. I have studied in Sociology, European Ethnology and Social and Economic Psychology in Göttingen and Udine. I have researched and taught in Göttingen as part of an Interdisciplinary Research Unit on Cultural Property, as a fellow at the Käte Hamburger Kolleg / Centre for Global Cooperation Research and as a postdoc at the University of Bonn.

I am interested in political anthropology and Europeanization studies; narratology, linguistic anthropology and the ethnography of communication; ethnography of organizations; methods in European Ethnology; cultural heritage and cultural property and sports culture research. My first book “Negotiating Tradition: The Pragmatics of International Deliberations on Cultural Property” has been published 2012 and is available as an open-access-version.
