Laura Otto is a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Institute for Cultural Anthropology and European Ethnology at Goethe-University Frankfurt. Coastal and island regions as well as transnational mobilities and migrations have been at the center of her research since 2013. The question of what happens when new actors arrive in coastal areas has been an overlapping research theme that connects her various research projects. She specializes in the ethnographic analysis of newly-emerging contact zones between heterogeneous human and more-than-human actors. She currently studies place-making practices at the nexus of harmful algae bloom, climate change and tourism in Mexico.
