Steffi Marung is senior researcher at the Collaborative Research Centre 1199 „Processes of Spatialization under the Global Condition“ at Leipzig University. After studying political science and German literature in Halle, Berlin, and Prague, she has gained a PhD in global studies from the University of Leipzig with a study on shifting border regimes of the expanding European Union since 1990, which she completed at the Leibniz Institute for the History and Culture of Eastern Europe in Leipzig.
