A warm welcome to our new Professor Anita von Poser!

On 1st October 2022 Prof. Dr. Anita von Poser was appointed as Full Professor at the Institute for Social and Cultural Anthropology at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, where she holds the chair for ‘Mobility Studies’ focusing on human-human and human-environmental relations. After her master’s and doctoral studies at Heidelberg University, where she received her DPhil in Social and Cultural Anthropology in 2009, she became MaxNetAging Postdoctoral Fellow at the Max Planck Institutes for Demographic Research in Rostock and for Social Anthropology in Halle/Saale. At Freie Universität Berlin, starting in 2011, she was first Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology, before becoming Principal Investigator in the Collaborative Research Center Affective Societies in 2015 and Professor of Psychological Anthropology with a focus on ‘Migration, Psyche, Aging’ in 2021. She combines her regional foci on Oceanic and diasporic-Vietnamese lifeworlds with her theoretical interests, especially in the fields of the Anthropology of Social Relationships as well as Psychological and Phenomenological Anthropology. In the coming years, her research and teaching will focus on phenomena of social, spatial, and material im-/mobility in view of fragmented contexts of care, altering life-courses, and ecological transformations. We are excited about her appointment and look forward to our collaboration!
