Elif Çiğdem Artan
2022/23 Mercator-IPC Fellow

Elif Çiğdem Artan is a sociologist with a professional and scholarly background in museology, urban studies, digital culture, migration, and gender. As a DFG-doctoral fellow at IGK—Center for Metropolitan Studies Berlin-New York-Toronto, her doctoral research project, titled ''The
Future of the Present: Autonomous Archiving of Activist Videos'' examines the born-digital materials remaining from the #Occupy movements in New York and Istanbul by applying the grounded theory and ethnographical research methodologies. 


Between May 2019 and September 2022, she worked as a researcher at DaMigra (Dachverband der Migrantinnen e.V.) in Berlin on racism and (hetero-)sexist gender-based violence. Her expertise at DaMigra lies in the intersectional analysis of a comprehensive implementation of the
Istanbul Convention in Germany. She is the co-author of the DaMigra-GREVIO-Shadow Report and numerous political papers demanding equal human rights for all in all areas of life. 


She has been globally active in her research domains by conducting workshops, giving lectures, and publishing papers. Aside from her research projects, she is the coordinator and curator of the Federal German Migrant Women’s Association’s (Bundesverband der Migrantinnen e.V.)
archival box in the Historical Museum Frankfurt. The participatory museum project encourages women to be the writer of their HERstory and hence the curator of their own collective voice.
