Introduction of our new Research Associate Maria Papenfuss
My name is Maria Papenfuss and I’m delighted to have joined the Department for the Study of Religion on May 1st, 2022. Apart from my work supervised by Prof. Dr. Bochinger, I’ll coordinate the XXXV. Conference of the DVRW.
After my Bachelor's degree in Cultural Studies with a focus on religion here at the university, I mainly focused on Afro-American religions as part of my Master's degree in Cultural and Communication studies in Mexico City. Afterwards, I organized the last DVRW conference hosted by the Institute of Religious Studies at the University of Leipzig, among other academic activities. I am currently writing my dissertation on the topic of Neopaganism in Mexico and look forward to teaching topics on this and related fields.
