Rebekah Plueckhahn is a team member of the ERC project ‘Emerging Subjects of the New Economy: Tracing Economic Growth in Mongolia’ at UCL. She is interested in how macroeconomic narratives influence people’s decisions as they coordinate social networks that span rural and urban Mongolian spheres. Rebekah is also interested in the connection between cultural practices and changing economic contexts. She is investigating new ways in which people are performatively expressing social, artistic and familial connections in changing economic climates that form part of Mongolia’s larger resource economy. Rebekah received her PhD from the Australian National University in 2013 for her research into changing musical-social practices among a group of Altai Urianghai people both in and from western Mongolia.
