    Vita

    Sarah Rüller holds a degree in media science (B.A.) and in Human Computer Interaction (M.Sc.) from the University of Siegen. She worked as a student assistant for the research project come_IN at Volker Wulf’s Chair of Information Systems and New Media and supervised computer club activities in Siegen and Bonn. Furthermore, she worked for Jens Schröter (Chair for Theory and Practice of Multimedia Systems at the University of Siegen, later Chair for Media Culture Studies at the University of Bonn). From November 2015 to February 2016 Sarah Rüller was also employed as a student assistant in the project for the social-integrative support of refugees in emergency accommodation at the University of Siegen and supervised the “Internet Café. Her bachelor thesis, significantly motivated and based on her interactions with Syrian refugees in emergency accommodation, is titled “Technological Management of Forced Migration among Syrian Refugees”.

    From March 2016 to December 2019 she worked as a research assistant in the subproject “B04 – Digital Publics and Social Transformation in the Maghreb” of the Collaborative Research Center 1187 – Media of Cooperation (https://www.mediacoop.uni-siegen.de/de/projekte/b04/). As part of the project, she completed several ethnographic field visits in the High Atlas in Morocco to establish and research a computer club. After her participation in the DAAD funded research exchange YALLAH! – You All Are Hackers in Palestine (http://yallah.exchange/) in 2016, Sarah Rüller coordinated the two subsequent exchange rounds together with Marios Mouratidis. In her master thesis “On the Trail of Media & Technology amidst Mountains, Transition & Culture: Design Case Study on the Viability and Sustainability of a socio-technical Intervention with Imazighen in rural Morocco” she reflects upon the establishment of the computer club and the methodological approach and identifies factors for sustainable ICT interventions in rural areas.

    Since January 2020 Sarah Rüller is working as a research associate at the Chair of Information Systems and New Media. She continues to work in subproject B04 of the Collaborative Research Center 1187 – Media of Cooperation. Her research interests are Ethnography in HCI, Intercultural Learning Settings and Community Cooperation and Innovation.
