Judith Tröndle is postdoctoral researcher in Social Research, Social Work and Arts-Based Interventions at the Institute for Social Research and Interventions (ISI). Her scholarly work is based on sociological as well as interdisciplinary perspectives on disability, gender, couples, and inclusion. She draws from and develops theoretical approaches such as ableism, stigmatization and subjectivation. Her research is based on qualitative methods such as hermeneutics, biographical analysis and discourse analysis. In her dissertation, she studied the processes of othering and subjectivation in regard to couples, where both partners are employed and their child is categorized as disabled.

After working in different research projects as Student Research Assistant (2007-2009) and Research Associate (2010-2011) at the Katholische Hochschule für Sozialwesen Berlin (KHSB), she was Research Fellow of the Ev. Studienwerk Villigst (2015-2019); Lecturer at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (2015/2016), at the Universität Innsbruck (2020) and at the Ev. Zentralinstitut für Familienberatung (EZI) (2018-2020).

A graduate of Katholische Hochschule für Sozialwesen Berlin (KHSB) (BA, 2010, in Inclusive Education, with excellence), she studied ‘Practical Research in Social Work and Early Education’ at the Alice Salomon Hochschule Berlin (MA, 2014, with distinction) and was awarded her doctorate by the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin at the Faculty of Education, Social and Cultural sciences (2020, summa cum laude). Additionally, she is a Gestalt-Music-Therapist certified by the Institut für Gestalttherapie und Gestaltpädagogik (IGG).

Research Interests

My research focuses on interdisciplinary questions raised in social work, disability studies, gender studies and the sociology of knowledge. I am interested in the ambivalences of subjectivation in interaction with societal inequalities. Furthermore I am conducting research around the subjects of disability, gender, couples, allies and inclusion, as well as music-based social interventions.
