Welcome

 

Katharina Eisch-Angus is a European ethnologist. As professor at the Institute for Cultural Anthropology and European Ethnology at the University of Graz, Austria, she researches and lectures in everyday fields of memory, experience and narration.

For three decades she has been following the anthropology of borders, of difference and liminality in terms of cultural theory, and in historical perspectives of nationalism and inter-ethnicity, war, migration and post-socialist change.

At present she inquires into the everyday discourse of safety/security within contemporary processes of governmentality and securitisation in relation to cultural change and economisation, the cohesion of everyday and community life, and the (self)images of the contemporary subject.

In various cultural practice fields she follows themes of art, craft and industrial work culture (especially in the medium glass) and explores the potentials of museum scenography, visual anthropology and of the interrelations between artistic research and ethnography.

Her methodological interest is predominantly in a contextual and multi-perspective ethnography, integrating processes of fieldwork, interpretation and supervision, and textualisation, and relating them to associative approaches of pragmatic cultural semiotics, multi-sited ethnography and ethno-psychoanalysis.
