Jennifer Tadge studied Ethnology and Arabic Studies at the University of Leipzig, as well as Museology at the University of Applied Sciences Leipzig. In 2014 she began her scientific traineeship at the State Museum Nature and Man Oldenburg. Subsequently, she researched the provenance of human remains of non-European origin. Since September 2018 she has been a doctoral candidate in the joint project "Provenance Research in Non-European Collections and Ethnology in Lower Saxony" at the State Museum Nature and Man Oldenburg. Her focus there is on collector biographies and acquisition concepts - especially in military contexts.
The project "The Colonial Collections of Oldenburg" expired at the end of 2021. Please direct project-related enquiries to the head of the sub-project Ursula Warnke.
