With the kind support of Frauen- und Gleichstellungsbeauftragte der JLU, we are happy to invite you to our next lecture with Dr Katharina Ameli, JLU-Gießen, on
Monday, May 3rd, between 12–14h,
Organized by the Chair of General Sociology and the Research Network in Queer Studies, Decolonial Feminisms and Cultural Transformations (QDFCT), the Lecture Series „New Insights in Gender and Trans-Studies,“ is part of a module on gender and social inequalities (B.A. Social Sciences) and is open to all those interested of all levels and fields.
Dr. Ameli holds a B.Sc. in nutrition and domestic sciences, an M.Sc. in domestic and service sciences, a 1st state examination in education for vocational schools and a PhD in sociology. Her research is focused on human-animal studies, animal-assisted interventions and obstetric violence. She has worked as a coordinator at the International Center for 3Rs (Replacement, Reduction and Refinement) in Animal Research since 2018 and is a postdoctoral researcher at the chair of Sociology of Socialisation and Education, Justus Liebig University Gießen. She is currently studying the methodological design of interdisciplinary collaboration in multispecies research.
How are nature and animals integrated inclusively into research projects through multispeciesethnography? While preceded by a vision that seeks to question holistically how scientists can integrate nature and animals into research projects through multispecies ethnography, this book focuses on inter- and multidisciplinary collaboration. From an examination of the interfaces between social and natural science-oriented disciplines, a complex view of nature, humans and animals emerges. The insights into interdependencies of different disciplines illustrate the need for a multispecies ethnography to analyze HumansAnimalsNaturesCultures. While the methodology is innovative and currently not widespread, the application of multispecies ethnography in areas of research such as climate change, species extinction or inequalities will allow new insights. These research debates are closely interwoven and the methodological inclusion of the agency of nature and animals and the consideration of traditional indigenous knowledge allow new insights of holistic multispecies research for the different disciplines. Multispecies ethnography enables positivist, innovative, cautious and reflexive analyses in multiple perspectives on HumansAnimalsNaturesCultures.
