Anna-Eva Nebowsky M.A.

Anna-Eva Nebowsky studied Social Science (B.A.) and Culture and Person (M.A.) in Bochum and Helsinki (2010-2018). Meanwhile, as a student and research assistant at the German Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE), she conducted research on the interaction of married couples in which one person has been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia (2013-2019). During a research semester at Aalborg Universitet (2016), she worked on individual and collective imagination from a (cultural) psychological perspective. From 2018 to 2021, she was a research assistant at the Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities in Essen (KWI) in the DFG project "Communication and Dementia". In 2020, she was at King's College London for a research stay. From 2021 to 2022, she was the managing director of the Landesarbeitsgemeinschaft Seniorenbüros NRW. Since June 2022, she has been a researcher in the Division of Ethics in Medicine in Oldenburg. In April 2024, she has submitted her doctoral thesis titled "Kommunikative Ko-Konstruktion von Paarbeziehung bei Demenz. Eine ethnografische Studie von Paaren, bei denen eine*r die Diagnose Demenz erhalten hat" at the Institute of Sociology at the Technical University Berlin.

Her research interests lie in particular in critical perspectives on common care concepts, for example in questions of person-status in dementia, in the significance of bodily interaction in advanced illnesses and in ethical aspects of domestic, including triadic care arrangements.
