Corinna Mascherin

Corinna Mascherin is a graduate student of the M.A. Transcultural Studies at

Heidelberg University. During her undergraduate education in Japanese studies at

Ca’ Foscari University she lived in Venice, where she appreciated a lively

multicultural environment, and experienced the benefits of a human-sized urban

landscape which promotes a life in harmony with nature. In Heidelberg, numerous

seminars coordinated by the Chair of Visual and Media Anthropology have nurtured

her academic interest in how we can live together in cities in more sustainable,

community-oriented, and engaged ways. She is currently researching on intentional

communities, ecovillages and bottom-up counter-hegemonic modes of living.
