Andreas Jünger, MA

Doctoral Candidate

Andreas Jünger obtained a bachelor’s degree in history and Romance studies (Spanish) from the University of Bonn. He graduated from the University of Münster with a master’s degree in history. His master’s thesis was titled “The Environmental Policy of the Chilean Government after the Military Dictatorship (1990–2010).” He undertook predoctoral studies at the University of Bochum and received funding (Research School PLUS) for a five-month research stay in southern Spain (March to August 2017).

Andreas joined the Doctoral Program Environment and Society in April 2018 and worked at the Rachel Carson Center (RCC) as events coordinator from April 2018 to July 2021, and as communications coordinator and lecturer from October 2022 to September 2023. During his time at the RCC, he obtained two research grants from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) for archival visits and fieldwork in Spain (2019 and 2021). He was a visiting doctoral student at the University of Málaga (2021) and is currently a fellow at the Leibniz Institute of European Hitory (IEG) in Mainz (until September 2024).

Andreas’s research concerns organic farming—its agricultural and environmental history, political ecology, and its role in agro-food studies—the economic, social, and environmental history of Germany, Spain, and Chile in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, as well as the history of green parties and ecological movements, particularly in Germany and Spain.
