Welcome to The Human Show, a place to talk about industry, scholarship, social science, humans and what is meaningful to them!
If you want to understand how social scientists’ study human behaviour, how industry innovates or want to know more about how they can successfully work together and enhance each other, then you have come to the right place!
Join our hosts as they engage with anthropologists, other researchers and industry specialists from all over the world. The discussions will be about their specific work in understanding people and how they apply that understanding to advance industry, scholarship and/or larger societal goals.
Whether you are a professional working in business and/or academia, still doing your studies or just simply interested in this topic, thank you for being here, and we hope you enjoy it!
Hi! I am Corina. I am currently living in The Netherlands (Amsterdam) but I have lived & worked pretty much all over the world in the last 12 years. I am a hybrid of 2 worlds, an ex-corporate in global innovation and an MsC in cultural anthropology and I strongly believe in the synergy between the two. Nowadays you can find me either at Transavia where I work as Lead Organisational Development or co-hosting the Interbuilding Applied Anthropology Meetup – at The University of Amsterdam. I am always eager to interview social scientists in their native Romanian and to expand the access of knowledge exchange.
Hi, I am Andrea. With more than ten years working in market research in Brazil, I expanded into the field of Digital Anthropology with an MSc in Cultural and Social Anthropology at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). I developed my thesis on constant connectivity in co-living ‘global citizens’, focusing on furthering our comprehension of human-technology interactions and the implications of such entanglement. My next challenge is investigating the influence of private contemporary art collectors on the cultural field, which I will develop as a PhD candidate in cultural sociology at the UvA later in 2020. I am always eager to interview social scientists in their native Portuguese and to expand the access of knowledge exchange.
Hi, I am Maria. Originally from Lithuania, having lived and worked in various parts of the world, I am currently based in Brussels, Belgium. Trained as an applied anthropologist (MSc), I am driven by the curiosity to understand and make sense of the world around me and am fascinated by how anthropology finds new ways to be impactful and meaningful. I am always eager to interview social scientists in their native Spanish or Lithuanian and to expand the access of knowledge exchange.
