Carmen Glink Buján gained her BA and MA degree in Social and Cultural Anthropology and Political Sciences at Freie Universität Berlin. After graduating from college in 2018, she started working as a social worker at Hydra e.V. Berlin, a counseling centre for sex workers. In her future career she hopes to successfully connect academia and activism to support
struggles against discrimination and oppression and to fight for global justice.
Her master’s thesis was based on her ethnographic field research with Nigerian sex workers in Barcelona. Her research interests include post-marxist, post-colonial and feminist theory and concentrates on topics surrounding gender, migration, self-organization and (sex)work. Carmen will attend graduate school for her PhD about racist motivated murder in Germany next year. In the past, she was organized in different anti-capitalist groups. Last year she became part of the first women* strike committee in Germany since 1994, where she is a leading member of the organizing committee. She enjoys taking part in different cultural events and loves to dance.
