Quirin Rieder

Quirin is a PhD student and University Assistant (prae-doc) at the Department of Cultural and Social Anthropology since October 2021. He studied social anthropology as well as literary and cultural theory in Munich, Tübingen, Durham (UK), and London. During his studies he worked, among other things, on the socio-political implications of energy transitions, especially regarding energy cooperatives in Germany but also the enduring power structure of carbon energy more general. Overall, he is interested in the making of ‘the state’ as well as in the relation between the distribution of state resources (including infrastructure) and the reproduction of social inequalities.
