Eva Kimminich is Chair of Romance Cultures at the University of Potsdam, Germany. Her key aspects are cultural and popular studies, particularly youth and subcultures. For her professional dissertation she analyzed censorship in 19th century and the forbidden Chansons destined to be sung in Parisian cafés–concerts developing a theory of reformulation (Erstickte Lieder.

Starting in 1998 with her research on rap in France, she is one of the first German researchers on Hip Hop in France and francophone Africa, founded partially by the VolkswagenStiftung. She conceives Hip Hop as toolbox of cultural technics, useful for reconstructing identity, community and society.
