Main Focuses Andreas Streinzer is research associate at the Transcultural Studies Group at the HSG since 2019. He was guest researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology in Halle/ Saale and at the University of Thessaly. Currently, he works at the Institute for Social Research and is Postdoc Fellow of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW). He graduated in social and cultural anthropology from University of Vienna in June 2019. He was further trained as guest student in sociology at Lancaster University, and social philosophy at Goethe University Frankfurt. His dissertation was an investigation into the reconfigurations of provisioning during the economic crisis in Greece. He developed an analytic framework to ethnographically study socio-economic formations during rapid transformations combining state austerity, recession and disconsumption. In his current research, he investigates the moralisation of inequalities in Europe, specifically concerning questions of taxation and welfare. The project is developed together with Jelena Tosic (Tosic & Streinzer 2021).
