Annina Gyger has completed her BA in Social and Cultural Anthropology at LMU Munich. Trained in tourism herself, she focused her thesis on the vocational training of refugees in the Austrian gastronomy during the COVID-19 pandemic. Annina’s minor in educational science, her interest in provenance research and bridging the gap between museums and universities led her to an internship at the Oceanic department of the Museum Fünf Kontinente in Munich, where she researched collections from New Guinea. In June 2022 she joined forces with the IndiGen team to organize the symposium What can museum anthropology do in the 21st century? as well as to develop future projects on museums, materiality and knowledge. She is currently about to start her MA focusing on the combination of material approaches and organisational culture.
