Vita

Kathrin Trattner studied Religious Studies and German Philology at the University of Graz. She finished her doctoral studies in Religious Studies in March 2020. In her dissertation, she investigated the construction of enemies in first-person-shooter video games with war settings from an intersectional perspective. Her primary research interests are religion, culture, and digital media, in particular video gaming. She is particularly interested in the interplay between religion as an identity marker and ascription with other social categorizations such as gender, ethnicity, or class. Kathrin Trattner joined the University of Bremen in March 2022 with her postdoctoral project “Gaming the Nation: An Intersectional Investigation of Nation, Identity, and Video Gaming”, funded by the Central Research Development Fund.
