Doctoral Fellow at the Research Training Group ‘Minor Cosmopolitanisms’ (University of Potsdam)

Anouk is a 2nd year PhD candidate at the Research Training Group ‘Minor Cosmopolitanisms’ (University of Potsdam). Her thesis deals with images produced within the European border regime and interrogates how these images become part of a visuality which aims to influence, shape and legitimize current migratory and refugee policies as well as produce the affective environment in which the ‘refugee crisis’ takes place. In aligning media images as well as techno-images of surveillance apparatuses, the thesis analyzes the complex ways how visuality is negotiated in post-democratic border regimes.
