Dr. Katja Rieck, Alman Federal Eğitim ve Araştırma Bakanlığı tarafından desteklenen, “İran ve Ötesi: Sürdürülebilir Akademik İşbirliği için Temel Atmak (IRSSC): İran İslam Cumhuriyeti’nde Kendini Güçlendirici Stratejiler Olarak Kültür, Din ve Beden Performansı” başlıklı projede araştırmacı olarak çalışıyor (Proje Yöneticisi: Prof. Dr. Raoul Motika, Din Çalışmaları araştırma alanından sorumlu Ortak Proje Yöneticisi: Dr. Robert Langer). IRSSC projesi kapsamında Dr. Rieck ve Dr. Langer yerel ve küresel çapta dolaşımda olan bilgi ve pratik örüntülerinin dini çağrışımlı, motivasyonlu veya meşruiyet kazanmış pratiklerin ve bunların yanı sıra karşılaştırılabilir, dini olarak meşrulaştırılmamış ancak seküler olduğu iddia edilen ‘kültürel’ pratiklerin üzerinde nasıl bir etkisi olduğunu, örneğin son yıllarda (değiştirme, yeniden etkinleştirme ve yeniden icat yoluyla) ortaya çıkmış olan hayırseverlik alanında, araştıracaklar.

2017’nin Temmuz ayında Katja Rieck Goethe Frankfurt Üniversitesi’den Sosyal ve Kültürel Antropoloji doktora derecesini aldı. Princeton Üniversitesi’nden Siyaset Bilimi ve Ekonomi lisans derecesini, Goethe Frankfurt Üniversitesi’den Sosyo-Kültürel Antropoloji ve Doğu Bilimleri yüksek lisans derecesini aldı. 2009 ve 2017 yılları arasında Frankfurt Mükemmelik Merkezi (Cluster of Excellence) “Normatif Düzenlerin Oluşumu”nda doktora öncesi araştırmacı olarak yer aldı. Ocak 2018 ve Mayıs 2019 tarihleri arasında Goethe Frankfurt Üniversitesi Sosyal ve Kültürel Antropoloji Enstitüsü’nde Alman Akademik Değişim Servisi tarafından desteklenen “Kaynakların Sosyal ve Kültürel Boyutları: İran ve Alman Perspektifleri” projesinde koordinatör olarak çalıştı. Bu proje kapsamında Goethe Üniversitesi Etnoloji Enstitüsü ile İsfahan Üniversitesi ve Meşhed Firdevsi Üniversitesi’nin çeşitli fakülteleri arasında araştırma ve öğretimde işbirliği ağları oluşturuldu. 2017’ye kadar Katja Rieck’in araştırma konusu kapitalizm eleştirisi ve yeni kültür fikirlerinin geç 19. ve erken 20. yüzyılda Hindistan’daki antikolonyal direnişin ortaya çıkmasındaki rolü ve bunun postkolonyal Hint ulus devletinin temel yapıları üzerindeki uzun vadeli etkilerine odaklandı. 2017’den beri Reick, Ortadoğu ve Kuzey Afrika bölgesinde neoliberalleşme politikaları bağlamında gerçekleşen dönüşüm süreçlerini özellikle İslam dünyası ve diasporasındaki hayırseverlik pratiklerine odaklanarak araştırıyor. Şimdiki projesi İran’daki sivil toplum hayırseverlik pratikleri üzerine yoğunlaşıyor.

-İran’daki günümüz ekonomik ve kültürel gelişmeler

-Sivil toplum hayırseverlik pratikleri ve bunların ekonomik ve sosyo-kültürel etkileri
