My name is Lisa Matthias. I am a graduate student at the Graduate School of North American Studies at Freie Universität Berlin. My PhD project focuses on how the Supreme Court is framed, or portrayed, by the US media, and how that influences public opinion of the Court.
I am passionate about open science and scholarly communication, travelling, and food. I strongly believe knowledge only becomes valuable when it is shared. This is why research and other educational resources should be available and accessible to anyone, who wants to educate themselves. A different form of learning is to travel. I love exploring new places, diving into other cultures, and collecting new experiences. One of my favorite ways of getting to know other cultures is through the local cuisine. For me, food comes from the heart, it brings us closer to the people around us, and gives us a very different, a more intimate, sense of them.
This blog features “Spotlight” posts, which shed light on the polictical sphere from the media’s perspective, but also include open science-y pieces. “Campfire” stories share my personal experiences and passions. Feel free to get in touch with me!
