Dr. Ingeborg Cleve
I am both, in that sequence, as engaged in planning and logistics of international moves as I have been in reading, writing and teaching modern history.
I have been co-operating with MTL for the last seven years, a move company specializing in private moves as well as office moves and company moves in the Frankfurt RheinMain area. I am acting as an independent agent
for their inter-national moving business, based on quality-certified infrastructure, well co-ordinated crews, climate-controlled warehouse, efficient backoffice.
My experiences gained in the move business are reflected in various journal articles, in part analyzing aspects like, for instance, move costs from a professional
perspective, in part reflecting upon expat clients' experience & lifestyle.
These reflections tie in with my historical research on aspects of modernization. I conceive my clients as both pushing forward and being driven by globali-zation,
and I am asking myself which kind of household items would suit their mobile lifestyle best, thus reaching back to concepts of eductaion in taste, the long roots of which. as I was able to detect,
reach back to the beginnings of modern society. Expat experience confirms the actual relevance of this aethetic education.
