I am an ethnographer of gender, sexuality, and intimacy, and my work explores the intersections of gender, sexuality and intimacy in the areas of (digital) health and (reproductive) technology, organizational practice and gender equality, and militarization and military education. I have a special interest in the history of queer ethnography, ethnography’s epistemological, methodological, and ethical underpinnings and how these dimensions relate to queer-feminist theorizing and empirical research.
My current research projects include:
Throughout the fall semester 2019, I am a STINT-fellow at the Gender Studies Program at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
My teaching covers different areas of gender studies such as men and masculinities; gender, health, and technology; ethnographic and qualitative research methods; queer ethnography; organizational analysis and gender equality.
I am managing editor of NORMA: International Journal for Masculinity Studies and member of the editorial board of Women, Gender & Research (Kvinder, Køn & Forskning). I am also vice-chair of the Research Network Sexuality of the European Sociological Association (ESA) and former co-convener of the European Network for Queer Anthropology (ENQA) of the European Association of Social Anthropologists (EASA) as well as former board member of the Danish Association for Gender Studies (Foreningen for Kønsforskning).
I am trained as cultural anthropologist and sociologist at Humboldt University, Berlin (2010) and received my PhD from the University of Copenhagen in Medicine, Culture, and Society (2014). Before joining the Centre for Gender Studies at Karlstad University in 2018, I was Assistant Professor in Educational Sociology at the Danish School of Education (DPU), Aarhus University (2015-2017).
