Curriculum Vitae

Nele Wolter is a Doctoral Fellow in the research group on “Ageing in a Time of Mobility” led by Dr. Megha Amrith. After studying cultural sciences and economics at the University of Bremen, she obtained her M.A. in Social and Cultural Anthropology from the University of Göttingen. Her master’s thesis examined how North German shepherds are affected by nature conservation guidelines in their working practices, and how they include (or do not include) the changing environmental influence into their everyday work. Since 2016, Nele has worked as a Student Assistant in the Department of Socio-Cultural Diversity at the MPI-MMG.
