Michaela Böhme (SFB 1199, Leipzig University, Germany)
Michaela Böhme is a research assistant working in the SFB project C4 “Land Imaginations: The Repositioning of Farming, Productivity, and Sovereignty in Australia” headed by Dr. Sarah Ruth Sippel. She earned a joint MA degree in global studies from the Leipzig University (Germany) and the University of Wrocław (Poland), during which she focused on China’s changing role in world affairs and the political, social, and economic processes currently transforming China. Her current research focuses on how Chinese investments into Australian agricultural land transform Australia’s food production system and explores the conflicting imaginations of land that play out in this process.
