Dr. Julian Anslinger

Social Psychologist, Scientist, Frauen* - Technik - Umwelt,


Since June 2019 I have been working at the Interdisciplinary Research Centre for Technology, Work and Culture in Graz. Before I worked  as a research assistant and doctoral student in the work group 'Gender and Emotion in Cognitive Interaction' at the CITEC, where I am researched into sexual objectification. Prior to that I worked as a research assistant in social psychology at the Karl-Franzens-University Graz (Austria). At that time, one of the research topics I focused on was the relationship between sexism and system-justification. After a two-months research visit at the Brown University (USA) I finished my Diploma Studies in psychology at the University of Graz in March 2014.

Since October 2011 I have been a member of the scientific workgroup Queer STS, which is working on queer perspectives in and on Science and Technology Studies.

Focus of Work

Social gender justice in academia and research, Stereotypes, Sexual objectification and harassment, Sexism, Judgment and decision making, Queer-feminist science and technology studies
