Tanja Ahlin

Anthropologist & Translator


I'm a medical anthropologist, exploring  science and technology studies (STS), currently a doctoral candidate at the University of Amsterdam.

I'm also a translator from English and French into Slovenian, having (co)translated 23 books of fiction,

non-fiction and poetry.

In my research, I pay attention to care, technologies, aging and gender. My method of choice and engagement is ethnography.


My favorite philosopher is Mary Oliver. My favorite anthropologist is Kurt Vonnegut. My favorite poet, Marc Chagall.
