Gözde Sarlak-Krämer

Gözde Sarlak-Krämer is a doctoral candidate at the Habitat Unit (TU Berlin). Her research interests include critical urban theory, commons, and political ecology as well as social reproduction and feminist theory. In her dissertation, tentatively titled ‘Commoning Spaces of Food‘, she aims to investigate alternative food networks in metropolitan areas. Specifically, her research project departs from the premise that commoning practices occurring in urban gardens, community supported agriculture projects, food coops or collective kitchens and sharing networks contain unique agencies and tools that would transform socio-economic relations. Analyzing ‘commoning’ as a practice unfolding within larger political, social and ecological systems, her research aims to develop tools to address such a complex phenomenon.
