Laura Bäumel

Since 2021 I‘m working as university assistant for Cultural Studies at the Department for Social Anthropology and Cultural Studies at the University of Zurich, where I am a PhD candidate with the project “Between Production and Reproduction. Mothers of the Precarious
Class in Factories”. The empirical part of the research project is based on interviews and participant observations in factories as well as my own experience as a part-time temporary worker in a car plant from 2015 to 2017.
I studied Cultural Anthropology and Sociology at the University of Graz and Humboldt University of Berlin. From 2019 to 2022 I have been running the critical education association “Kontra.Punkt”, which is focused on schools in rural areas (thematic focus: capitalism,climate crisis and racism).
