Ester Fritsch

Ester Fritsch holds an M.A. in Anthropology from The University of Copenhagen. Her research engages with complex ethical configurations that embrace laws, policy, humans, plants, technologies, data and other influences. She is curious towards how ethics emerges through relational practices unfolding in such hazy intertwinements indicating that ethics might not solely be a human affair, but a more than human matter. For the past five years Ester has explored this through empirical and conceptual inquiries into climate change, energy and agriculture in Denmark and Italy. As a PhD fellow in VIRT-EU she now seeks to understand how ethics is cultivated and circulated in European IoT ecologies and delves into how ethics is enacted among IoT developers as ethical subjects in continuous becoming.
