Katharina Fink works as researcher, writer and cultural organizer. She holds a Magister in Cultural Studies from University of Thübingen and a PhD from BIGSAS, University of Bayreuth. She is and has been engaged in various projects ranging from all cultural areas to research and teaching.

Keeping in touch with her second home university, she’s affiliated researcher at the Department of Historical Studies, University of Johannesburg.
