Angela Firmhofer

I am currently doing qualitative research on the so called „agents of change“ who strive for a more social, ecological and sustainable society in the cities of Munich, Barcelona and Copenhagen.

Generally, I’m focusing on urban geography and cultural anthropology, sustainability and society, inter- and transdisciplinary approaches as well as on the combination of digital media and science. I’m definitely a lateral thinker because I love to link entities which might seem opposed at first sight.

I hold a diploma in Human Geography, European Cultural Studies, Law and Social Psychology from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich (2005-2012) and spent one semester abroad at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (2007/2008). Currently I am a doctoral student at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich (since 2012).

If you like what I write or if you want to share your knowledge and expertise with me, please contact me!
