Lecturer Dr. Jill Blau at Oxford University

06. Jun. 2024

As part of a research stay, lecturer Dr. Jill Blau gave a lecture at the University of Oxford on June 4, 2024 on the topic: “Interdependencies, Care and Commoning: The Case of Pastoralists in Ethiopia and Germany”.

The lecture is based on the recently published book by Jill Philine Blau: Land, Gender and Commons (2023). Using extensive case studies of commoning in Ethiopia and Germany, Jill Blau explores how categories of social difference – particularly gender and age – have a structuring effect on the commons and how the commons can be understood more deeply through a broader understanding of reproductivity and care. Jill Blau leads a Master's program in Development Studies for Professionals at the School of Social Sciences at Friedensau Adventist University.
