Marcel Knöchelmann is a cultural sociologist with a focus on publishing in humanities scholarship or literary production. Marcel finished his PhD in 2021 after a research stay at Yale University in 2020, and worked for different publishing houses in the UK and Germany prior to his research. He currently works as a researcher at the DZHW in Berlin (German Centre for Higher Education Research and Science Studies), looking into the meaning of authorship in academia.

His studies are supported by doctoral scholarships of the German National Merit Foundation (Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes) and the AHRC UK through the London Arts and Humanities Partnership (LAHP).

Before his PhD, Marcel worked as a bookseller for three years and gained practical experience in publishing with projects at John Wiley & Sons, De Gruyter, The Academic Book of the Future project, Knowledge Unlatched, and the International Arthurian Society, among others. He continues to work on publishing projects alongside his research.
