Dr Tomke Lask

I am a social anthropologist trained at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and at the University of Liege in Belgium. I am directing a small research centre at the University of Liege, the Laboratory of Anthropology of Communication (LAC). The subject of my MA thesis was about oral history in a State owned city and steel mill in Brazil. My PhD analysed the social construction of the German and French national identity. The culturally determined reappropriation of public space is one of the subjects I have been working more recently on, for example, the intercultural relationship between Nikkey immigrants from Latin America and the local Japanese population in Tsurumi (Yokohama). I have studied the relation between tourism and poverty in Bali, Laos and Viet Nam for the last two years in a European project, as well as the impact of tourism on the quality of life in small and medium sized European cities.
