Dr. Nadine Wagener-Böck

Employee in "MPL"

Dr Nadine Wagener-Böck joined the Media│Transformation department as a research fellow in 2020. She works on exploring the processes of change influencing the ways schools work with (digital) educational media. Her current research interests focus on post-digital everyday life with other-than-humans within the context of inequality, sustainability, and philanthropy.

Prior to working at the Georg Eckert Institute she worked in the project group Lehre und Medienbildung (Teaching and media literacy) at the TU Braunschweig. She studied German philology and cultural anthropology/ European ethnology at the University of Göttingen and gained her doctorate in the latter with a thesis on vestimentary practices in generational relationships that was funded by the DFG postgraduate programme on generational history. She then worked on a postdoctoral project examining how humanitarian organisations deal with donations of old clothes, which was funded by the Isa Lohmann-Siems Stiftung in Hamburg. While working on her thesis, and afterwards, Nadine Wagener-Böck worked as a research assistant, teacher and lecturer teaching cultural theory, ethnographic methodology and various topics of material culture in Göttingen, Kiel and Dortmund. She has also spent time teaching and researching in England and Iceland.
