Dr. Bastian Lange
Researcher in Berlin / Germany
I am an urban and economic geographer and specialised within the creative industries, questions of governance and regional development. I spearhead the research and strategic consultancy office Multiplicities in Berlin and have been Guest Professor at the Humboldt University in Berlin between 2011 and 2012. I am particularly interested in socioeconomic transformation processes within the creative knowledge age, and refining them into a useable form for the fields of politics, business and creative scenes. I have studied geography, ethnology and urban planning in Marburg and Edmonton and obtained a doctorate at the Johann-Wolfgang Goethe University, Frankfurt am Main, at the Institute for Geography in 2006. I am a Fellow of the Georg Simmel Centre for Metropolitan Research at the Humboldt University in Berlin.
