Project Description

Welcome, President Frieda!

Welcome, President Frieda!

Join us in extending a warm welcome to Frieda Schmidt (left), who takes over as the President of the SDCN Management Team!⁠

Frieda is from Germany and has an academic background in art history and anthropology. She worked as a researcher both in her home country as well as abroad in Australia, focussing on indigenous cultural objects and their mobility. Applying a mixed-method design to her PhD thesis on European museum collections of indigenous cultural objects she has experience in both qualitative as well as quantitative analysis and contributes to the research fields of digital humanities and post colonial studies.⁠

Moving to Stockholm in March 2020, Frieda joined SDCN as a member of the Management Team in October of the same year and since then became a significant part of our team. She has been a constant fixture at various SDCN events – her innate humble charm and friendliness make her a known face in the Network. Her guided visits to Stockholm’s significant cultural sites (ex. Skogskyrkogården) are always a special treat.⁠

Frieda resonates with the experiences that partners go through while shifting to another country and appreciates the SDCN’s created ‘safe haven’. The SDCN team gives you an opportunity to form a social and professional network while making genuine friendships along the way. Sharing ones progress with other members and being accompanied by people who are going through the same changes is massive support for all of us.⁠

“I am delighted to take over the presidency of SDCN from Puck Imants (right), now one of SDCN’s successful alumni, who has found an exciting new position as a Data Scientist and is entering the Swedish world of full-time employment. I look forward to contributing my skills and expertise in this new role to continue our exciting work and help every member accomplish their goals.”⁠

We wish Frieda the best of luck and look forward to having her at the helm, with her positive spirit and enthusiasm guiding SDCN.
