My name is Mareike and I am delighted to join the Deutsches Haus team as a summer intern in the cultural program.
I originally started my graduate studies at the Humboldt University in Berlin studying Kulturwissenschaft (cultural history and theory) and subsequently joined NYU’s Interdisciplinary Master’s Program in Humanities and Social Thought in September of 2014. I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to complete my studies in both Germany and the US.
I have taken classes in aesthetics, science studies, and media theory, while my own research focuses on the phenomenon that occurs between the body and media theory in various cultural realms. As Deutsches Haus promotes cultural events broaching the issues of (cross-) cultural interest, the work that I will be conducting here will really complement my graduate studies. I am very much looking forward to supporting and participating in the discussions and encounters here at Deutsches Haus!
Auf einen schönen Sommer!
