Martha Ehrich

Since April 2021 Martha Emilie Ehrich is a Postdoc responsible for the project management of the international research project „GEP Analysis: Assessing, Understanding, and Modeling the Impact of Gender Equity Policies (GEP) in the Film Industry“ (DFG/ESRC/SSHRC, 2021-2024). Next to this, Martha currently cooperates on projects regarding Network Research, gender inequality and the film (festival) industry. Martha's research interests primarily lie with bridging organizational research, critical political economy and feminist philosophy of science. Martha's newest project revolves around feminist ethology in the production of German-language natural history documentaries, analyzing the sector's historical emergence, its networked production structures and its forms of reproducing as well as opposing scientific discourses on human/animal ethology feeding into societal gender norms.
