Professor Brigitte Bönisch-Brednich is the current Head of School of Social and Cultural Studies at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand. She is a cultural anthropologist with a special interest in the anthropology of higher education, academic mobility, narrative research and ethnographic methodology. Since moving to New Zealand, she has also developed a strong interest in colonisation and the politics of reconciliation.

She is currently working on a book on academic mobility and has published several articles on that topic. Her work as Head of School and her own mobility experience have influenced her research and writing and continues to be a strong part of her interest in autoethnographic methodologies and narrative analysis. She is co-editor of FABULA, a journal specialising in folk narrative research. Her recent books are on biculturalism in Aotearoa New Zealand and on migration and the politics of place. She trained and received her academic degrees in Germany, and has taught in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and New Zealand.
