Dora is a culturologist based in Berlin. She has an MA in Eastern European Studies from Bologna University and is currently finishing her PhD in Social and Cultural Studies. She is writing about the discarding of books and forgetting. She has held fellowships or studied at universities in Germany, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Turkey and Slovenia. Her current research interests revolve around vanished states and the materialization of memory. Among her other passions are literature and film. Her interest in the memorialization of state socialism led her to collaborate with several museums in Berlin.

She looks forward to sharing her enthusiasm and knowledge with curious travellers on Context tours.
