Abstract

Lea Bauer is a scientific assistant at the Institute for Geography, Universität Leipzig. After getting a diploma in Geography and Middle Eastern Studies in Leipzig in 2012, she is currently working at her Ph.D.

Her research interests lie at the interface between Political Geography, Cartography, Qualitative Visual Geographies and Artistic Research Methods. Her Ph.D. project on web-based map activism ('tactical maptivism') focuses on aspects of politization within contentious mapping practices. Additionally, she creates visuals for qualitative research projects as a freelance cartographer since 2010.

From 2014 to 2018 she was researcher at the Leibniz Institute for Regional Geography in Leipzig and was funded by German Academic Fellowship Foundation from 2016 to 2018.

She is part of a DFG research network on digital geographies.

Lea Bauer is teaching 'Qualitative Research Methods in Human Geography'
