Marion Schulze is assistant professor of Gender Studies and Cultural Anthropology and Co-Chair of the Centre for Gender Studies at the University of Basel. This position is held in a joint professorship with Prof. Alain Müller

Schulze’s research interests lie at the intersection of the sociology of social worlds, feminist epistemology, and studies of social scientific knowledge. With an overall interest in the materialities of knowledge-making, Schulze currently focuses her research on verbs as concepts in feminist theory. Her pilot study entitled Feminist Material Theory – in which she reconnects the concept-verbs ‘weaving’ and ‘stitching’ to the material practices they stem from – has earned her a Spark Grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF). Within this interest, Schulze also researches the use of hyphens to re-vision theories and worlds in 1970s and 1980s feminist texts.
A second strand of Schulze’s research is the study of social worlds and their ecologies of knowledge. Her monograph Hardcore & Gender is the first detailed ethnographic study on how knowledge on gender is articulated, circulated, and standardized translocally in hardcore(-punk). This led her to document graphic design in 1980s hardcore through a blog series, along with developing an interest in analog design. In a larger follow-up project on K-Drama viewers, Schulze focused on the Internet as a digital infrastructure that brings worlds into existence. This research nourished her interest in the interweaving of multiple realities and the inclusion of non-human entities, such as plants in the study of social worlds.
Prior to joining the Centre for Gender Studies, Schulze built up a EU-COFUND graduate school at the Swiss School of Public Health (SSPH+). This followed her preceding appointments as a senior lecturer in Gender Studies at the University of Neuchâtel and as a doctoral researcher at the University of Basel, where she earned her PhD in sociology. She graduated from the University of Osnabrück, Germany, pursuing studies in arts and English.
