Alina Rörig


Research Fellow

I am working as a researcher in the projects "iKNOW" and "RAIstudents" in the fields of development, realisation und evaluation of competence centered formats of teaching and lerning. 

My background lies in Cultural and Social Anthropology as well as in Primary and Secundary Education. Besides my passion for ethnographic research, I am a trainer for political education.



Fields of interest:

  • Ethnography (participatory, narrativ and visual research formats)
  • Reproduction
  • Medical Anthropology

My thesis focused on women's health and reproduction. I carried out an ethnographic study in the field of natality – a field through which pregnant women navigate from their pregnancy test to the end of the postpartum period - and addressed current conflict-anthropological issues, especially concerning negotiations of safety and risk in pregnancy and childbirth.



Selected Talks and Lectures:

  • Lecture „LFP  Geflüchtet - und dann?“ at the project Ethnographic Film at the Institut for European Ethnology (B.A. Vergleichende Kultur- und Religionswissenschaft) at Philipps-University Marburg Sommer 2015

  • „Grenzen ziehen – Grenzen aufbrechen in Schwangerschaft, Geburt und Wochenbett“ at the colloquium for feminististic thesis of the fe_m marburg Kollektiv on 21.11.2019 in Marburg

  • „Empowermentprozesse in Schwangerschaft, Geburt und Wochenbett“ at the network meeting at  PRiNa – Politiken der Reproduktion, interdisziplinäre Nachwuchsforscherinnengruppe on 22.-23.11.2019 in Rauischholzhausen
