Christine Plicht, M.A.

nicht-wiss. Mitarbeiterin, Abteilung Banerjee

I am a research coordinator and assistant to Prof. Dr. Mita Banerjee at the Obama Institute for Transnational American Studies, where I also used to teach. I obtained degrees from the University of Siegen (B.A. in Literary, Cultural and Media Studies and Economics) and the University of Mainz (M.A. in American Studies). My theses and courses connected film and other popular culture media to issues and representations of indigeneity in different locales. During my studies I went abroad to take classes at the University of Otago, New Zealand, which sparked my interest in Indigenous Studies.

I perform administrative duties in Prof. Banerjee’s team and work as research officer, coordinating and managing research activities as well as the Obama Institute’s event and PR initiatives.
