About the Author

Ute Luig was until 2010 Professor of Anthropology at the Freie Universitat Berlin. She did long-term fieldwork in different African countries and Cambodia. Her main interests besides the conceptualization of nature and cultural approaches to disaster research are memory and spirit possession cults. She studied disasters from different perspectives, e.g. in form of the HIV/AIDS crisis, war and memory in Cambodia and cultural interpretations of so-called "natural disasters".
