Benjamin Mørch Personal Bio/Contribution Statement

Benjamin Mørch graduated from Copenhagen University in 2017 with a B.A. in Ethnology and Visual Anthropology. His main academic interest has been working with processes of othering or the figure of ‘the stranger’ in the media and education system often with a feminist scholar framework. During his bachelor’s he focused on ethnographic fieldwork using visual and audio methods, and developed workshops about cultural history for educational use. Since he has used his skills in different settings and worked on documentaries, as a teacher, ethnologist conducting fieldwork and campaign leader for an NGO. His interest in pedagogy using media and digital tools has grown in the last years where he has worked making educational material for high schools students and as a teacher. He is currently in his first semester of a master in Digital Humanities, and he hopes to explore and learn more about digital pedagogy and skills in digital tools for educational use. In the project “What is a Community Garden in the Digital Age” his main task is to design and conduct a smaller ethnographic fieldwork with selected community gardens and work with the user experience and development of the final site.
