Julia Schubert is a sociologist, exploring interrelations between science and politics. She examines how scientific expertise shapes political realities and how political realities, in turn, determine scientific research topics, cultures, and methods. Julia holds a PhD from the University of Bonn. She is currently a postdoctoral researcher at Speyer University, as well as a junior fellow at Bielefeld University’s Institute for Advanced Study (ZiF) and at the University of Bonn.
