Doerte Weig

Doerte Weig is a social anthropologist with an interest in uncovering the different facets of mobility and migration, and how the physicality of movement relates to social-political change and urban transformation. She is a specialist on the nexus of bodies and mobilities, and she believes we cannot think the future of cities and migration successfully, without taking into account the physicality and sensoriality of our moving bodies.
