Monika Christine Rohmer is a research associate of the chair of African and Afrophone Philosophies (Prof. Dr. Alena Rettová). She is currently pursuing her PhD with the working title "Towards a Fluid Ecosophy. Conceptualisations of WATER at the Senegalese Coast" in the framework of the Bayreuth International Graduate School of African Studies (BIGSAS).

Before obtaining her MA in African Verbal and Visual Arts at the University of Bayreuth, she majored in Political Science in her undergraduate at Leipzig University, during which she did a semester abroad UATM Gasa Formation Cotonou, Bénin.

Her main research interests are eco-linguistics, cognitive linguistics, post- and decolonial studies, knowledge formation, and political activism. She is fascinated by popular arts (especially hip-hop), political philosophy, and (non-)migration studies. Her language focus is Wolof and Hausa.

Monika Rohmer is happy to answer all inquiries relating to the BA programme African Verbal and Visual Arts. Furthermore, inquiries and recommendations regarding the Afrikanistik/AVVA website should be addressed to her.
