Tim Schütz


Graduate Student, Cultural Anthropology, University of California Irvine


My research focuses on data and knowledge infrastructures, crisis management and environmental advocacy. I currently work on civic data infrastructure in response to "the Anthropocene" expansively conceived. I hold a B.A. in Media, Communication and Cultural Anthropology from the University of Bremen and a prospective MA in Science and Technology Studies (STS) from Goethe University Frankfurt.

I participate in and co-develop a series of collaborative research, teaching and infrastructure projects:

My writing has appeared in peer-reviewed journals, edited volumes, and public-facing reports. In 2017, my ethnographic study of free wireless network activism in German refugee camps received the DARIAH-DE Digital Humanities Award. I also produce visual work, including the science communication series “Tactics for Quotidian Anthropocenes."
