about me

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]

Dr. Doerte Weig

My main interest is to uncover the different facets of human movement and turn this into actionable insights for research, business, and the arts. My first contact with these questions on a larger scale was during my years heading corporate change and vision projects in an international business environment.

Completing a doctorate in Social Anthropology and conducting structured ethnographic research in the fields of mobilities, organisational transformation, movement practices and performance, now gives me a deep insight into human movement, the physicality of movement, and its relation with social change.
