Ann-Cathrin Coenen

Phd Student

Having a background in social- and cultural psychology, my main interests lay in examining intergroup relations, including extreme forms of political behaviours, and facilitating the well-being of vulnerable groups.

For my PhD, I take a historical-cultural lens to understand emerging collective action during a time of increased governmental control. More specifically, I investigate the drivers behind the anti-corona-measures and counter-protest movements in Germany. Here, I ask: How do protesters draw on context and time to justify protesting in the present?

Furthermore, in a collaborative project with Jagiellonian University in Cracow, I investigate what drives some people to withdraw and others to engage in various forms of political engagement (e.g., normative, non-normative, extreme engagement) for the climate and for gender equality in Norway and Poland through a mixed-methods approach.
