Veronika Lipphardt has published a book about German-Jewish physical anthropologists and geneticists and how they contributed to the scientific debate about the so-called "Jewish race" between 1900 and 1935. From 2006 to 2009, she has been a researcher in the BMBF-funded Collaborative Research Project "Imagined Europeans. The scientific construction of Homo Europaeus" at Humboldt University Berlin, studying imaginations of the "European" and its biological essence in the life sciences from the 18th century until today. She has studied history, biology, musicology and social sciences in Vienna, Potsdam, Berlin and Freiburg.
