Rebekah Plueckhahn

 

Rebekah Plueckhahn is a McArthur Research Fellow in Anthropology at the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Melbourne. Her research considers the ways that materiality and financialization intersect with emerging urban politics and ethics and conceptualizations of ownership in changing urban spaces.

This research, based in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, forms the basis of her forthcoming book with UCL Press. Rebekah also researches prefiguration, perceptions of the future and performance in West Mongolia, where she has published on topics including musical sociality, causality, value creation and morality. She has written on the anthropology of capitalism in Mongolia and the interconnections between postsocialist property regimes and rapid investment-fueled urban growth. Prior to joining the University of Melbourne in 2019, Rebekah worked as a postdoctoral Research Associate for four years at University College London (UCL) – Anthropology, and subsequently as a Teaching Fellow in Social Anthropology in the same department, where she taught on the anthropology of capitalism, the anthropology of nationalism, ethnicity and race, and on political and economic anthropology. She obtained her PhD from the Australian National University in 2014.
