Short Bio

Katharina Gartner is a researcher and lecturer on youth and expressive cultures, with a special interest in music. She works at the departments of African Studies and Musicology, University of Vienna, and at Vienna University of Economics and Business. Her Ph.D. research focuses on young instrumental musicians in Accra, Ghana, and traces questions of “prolonged youth” and creativity in a setting of rapid urbanization, increased precarity, digital revolution and accelerated global flows.

Katharina Gartner’s work stems from an international and interdisciplinary background. She studied in Vienna, Paris, Accra, and Harvard: African studies, anthropology of music, psychoanalysis of youth and educational studies. In addition to Austria and France, her research led her to four African countries. Her scientific work is inspired by her practical experience as a counselor for youths and their families, and as a performing musician.
