About me

Dimitris Soudias is the Hellenic Bank Association Postdoctoral Research Fellow. In his doctoral dissertation, he investigated the formation of political subjectivity against the backdrop of crisis and austerity in Greece, by tracing the meaning-making practices of participants of the 2011 Syntagma Square occupation. His current research explores the ways in which entrepreneurs in the Cultural and Creative Industries in Athens and Berlin confront uncertainty and the future. Dimitris held research positions at the Center for Near and Middle Eastern Studies at Philipps-Universität Marburg, and at the Center for Middle Eastern and North African Studies at Freie Universität Berlin. He was also a visiting fellow at the Collaborative Research Center “Dynamics of Security” and visiting lecturer at the Center for Conflict Studies at Philipps-Universität Marburg. Prior to joining the HO, Dimitris was the head of library and information at the Goethe-Institut Athens, where he designed and implemented a major reconceptualization of the library together with his team, for the purpose of imagining the library as a space of commoning knowledge against the backdrop of the economization of everyday life in informational capitalism. Dimitris received his doctoral training in political science from Philipps-Universität Marburg. He holds a Graduate Diploma in Middle East Studies from the American University in Cairo and a Dipl. Pol. in Political Science from Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg.
