Thomas Meier


Thomas Meier has been trained as an archaeologist and holds a professorship in pre- and early history at Heidelberg University. He has researched and taught in the subject areas of medieval death, burial, and afterlife, on the making and appropriation of heritage and on human-environmental relations in the longue durée. For eight years he has been on the directorate of the Heidelberg Center for the Environment (HCE), serving two and a half years as director. Over the years Thomas has focused more and more on the epistemology and conditions of academic reasoning with special focus on critical inquiry and materialities. He usually works from a perspective of radical constructivism.
