Prof. dr. Vivienne Matthies-Boon has an interdisciplinary background which is grounded in German Critical Theory, Political Science (esp Middle East Studies and International Relations) and Sociology (esp Social Theory and Medical Sociology). Her primary interests are in the phenomenological experiences of injustice - and particularly how trauma, health, wellbeing and existential vulnerability affect and are affected by political structures and mobilisation. She is thus keen on re-engaging existentialist, phenomenological work on anxiety, fragility, trauma, death, illness and health with historical materialist work on social and political structures.
