Nina Baum, currently pursuing her Master’s degree in M.A. DESH (South Asian Studies), with a major in Anthropology and minor in Political Science. She is strongly interested in intersections of Anthropology with questions of class and political economy. Regarding urban studies, her interests include social and symbolic boundaries within the city, demarcating economic differences and marginalization, and how perceptions and experiences of proximity and distance shape people’s connection to the city they live in.
Besides, she is working as a research assistant at Heidelberg Institute of Global Health, where she is involved in conducting qualitative research with children. Therefore, she is also particularly interested in the field of Medical Anthropology as well as in qualitative research methods for doing research with children.
