Daniel Schneider studied North American Studies and Cultural Anthropology and has been a staff member at the Archiv der Jugendkulturen e.V. in Berlin since 2010. His main topics include club culture, the history of youth culture and pop music since the 1950s, the work of independent archives, and Berlin’s urban history.
