For Research. For Berlin.

Martin Lüthe

Being an expert in American Studies, Einstein Junior Fellow Martin Lüthe conducts research on “Critical Whiteness Studies“ – a US-born young research branch in the field of racism and discrimination research in which the construction of whiteness as a normative category is questioned. On the basis of selected case studies, Lüthe examines how the portrayal as “white” (or “black”) conditions the testimonials concept of identity in the digital age reciprocally affecting their actions and thinking.
