Christoph studied Social Anthropology and Middle East Studies at the University of Leipzig from 2004–2011. With his first travels to Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan he set my research focus on the Levant region within the Arab Middle East. From 2008–2012 he worked for the Collaborative Research Center 586 „Difference and Integration“ at the Universities of Leipzig and Halle/Lutherstadt Wittenberg where he conducted his first ethnographic research on Bedouin representations in Syrian television dramas and Arab media discourses about authenticity. His PhD-research project concerns the breeding, standardization, and circulation of Arabian purebred horses with an ethnographic focus on Egypt and Arab actors within the global breeding industry. Research interests are the anthropology of the Middle East, multispecies-ethnography/human-animal-studies, STS, mobility and nomadic studies, translocal entanglements, critical orientalism, media anthropology, kinship, and social reproduction approaches.

The Situationality of Human-Animal Relations : Perspectives from Anthropology and Philosophy
Thiemo Breyer, Thomas Widlok | transcript Verlag (2018) | ISBN: 3839441072
Chapter: Interspecies Performance The Composition of the Arabian Show Horse as Living Sculpture, Christoph Lange (pgs. 143-166)
Riding, hunting, fishing, bullfighting: Human-animal relations are diverse. This anthology presents various case studies of situations in which humans and animals come into contact and asks for the anthropological and philosophical implications of such encounters. The contributions by renowned scholars such as Albert Piette and Kazuyoshi Sugawara present multidisciplinary methodological reflections on concepts such as embodiment, emplacement, or the »conditio animalia« (in addition to the »conditio humana«) as well as a consideration of the term »situationality« within the field of anthropology.
