Working under the roof of CARMAH as a student assistant to Sharon Macdonald and the team brought with it a refreshing variety of tasks. Alongside the management of our library and the maintenance of the site you’re reading this text on, I aided the researchers in the diverse aftermath of field research and assisted in the organization of CARMAH’s events.

I was a graduate student at the Institute for European Ethnology. Yet questions of presentation and representation, of knowledge production and its transfers, and the role of technologies herein still attract my anthropological gaze. The opportunity to support CARMAH provided not only for my skills to be expanded through inspiring collaboration with the team, but also to join in an exciting upgrowth process in the vibrant city of Berlin. It remains a pleasure to follow the exciting research and thereby, ideally, contribute to the spreading of its implications in practice.
