Professor for Interdisciplinary Women and Gender Studies at Technical University Berlin
Principle Investigator of sub-project C: “Within and Beyond Law. Feminist Perspectives on Urban and Housing Commons”

Commons or commons-like collectives problematize historically established legal regulations and the social relations that go with them. In doing so, they also question the separation of productive and reproductive activities, of public and private spheres, which has formed in gendered patterns. By examining concrete processes in which solidary forms of relationships are tested in urban & housing commons and liabilities and conflicts with and beyond the law are regulated, I hope to gain important insights into the conditions of the co-constitution of subjects and sociality in late capitalist societies, to critically question them, and to point out possibilities for emancipatory transformation.
