M.A. Pascale Schild
I have been working as a teaching and research assistant at the Institute since August 2014. After having completed my master’s degree in Social Anthropology at the University of Bern – with a thesis on Muslim women’s identity politics in Switzerland – I joined the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology at the LMU Munich as a PhD candidate and research fellow in a research project on “Politics of Reconstruction after the Earthquake in Pakistan and Azad Kashmir” (funded by the Swiss National Foundation and the German Research Council). I conducted ethnographic fieldwork in Muzaffarabad, the capital of Azad Kashmir (Pakistan), between 2009 and 2012. Currently, I am completing my PhD thesis on local practices (of reconstruction) of homes in the context of state reconstruction policies. My teaching and research interests include politics of disaster and reconstruction, the ethnography of “the state”, and the anthropology of houses and homes (with a focus on Pakistan).
