Background and Facts

Sabine Bauer-Amin is a postdoctoral researcher in social anthropology. Her research focuses on the dynamics of belonging and differentiation in the Middle East. She specializes in youth movements, coping, uncertainty and forced migration. 

She received her Ph.D. in socio-cultural anthropology from the University of Vienna, in association with the American University in Cairo.

In her current postdoc position at the Austrian Academy of Science Institute for Social Anthropology, she researches asymmetric encounters between Arab and Austrian actors, the circulation of knowledge between them, mobilizations of difference and new emerging forms of sociality.
