Ulli Vilsmaier

Ulli Vilsmaier has been trained as a geographer at Salzburg University and has been working at the Methodology Center, Leuphana University of Lüneburg, since 2011. Currently she holds a visiting professorship at the Department of Philosophy and Sciences of Art. Her research and teaching focus is on epistemological and methodological foundations of inter- and transdisciplinary research. Based on a logic of responsivity she is working on the constitution of space and the design of in-between spaces for transformative research. Of particular interest are concept-, image- and artefact-based methods of boundary work and formative accompanying research. Ultimately, she has been focusing on the exploration of transdisciplinarity and sustainability within an intercultural orientation and on the conceptualization of transdisciplinary research as a nomadic science.
