Antje Baecker

Anthropologist
Institute of Anthropology - University of Leipzig / Germany
Participates in 1 Session

Antje Baecker is a PhD candidate at Leipzig University’s Institute for Anthropology. She writes about cultures of tasting in relation to conceptions of body and person in the Peruvian Andes. Her research which is based on extensive fieldwork in the Colca Valley, located in the Southern Peruvian Andes contributes to debates of cultural appropriation and to the Anthropology of food and the senses.

Due to her professional background as a cook, Baecker has a special understanding of the lived experiences of female taste makers. In her dissertation she deals also with her own culinary biography. Grown up in the GDR (German Democratic Republic)/ East Germany, her gustatory identity is shaped by periods of political restrictions and changes. She has experience as a tutor in the field of practice-oriented multi-sensory field research, student experimental exhibition projects and likes to work on the development of multi-sensory concepts for ethnographic representations.
