Innovative Research Communication

I often use qualitative and arts-based research methods to explore human thoughts, creations, and relations. I have done archival studies, content analysis, multimodal analysis, aesthetic analysis, diffractive analysis, discourse analysis, policy analysis, qualitative interviews, focus group interviews, ethnographic fieldwork, and situated art intervention.

With a strong background within the arts & humanities, I have developed close collaborations with social and natural scientists working on artscience, natureculture, and human-nature relationships. Theoretically, my work is inspired by feminist theories, feminist posthumanism, and new materialism. Empirically, my research is increasingly connected to the Arctic where I have lived since 2014.

I am trained in Musicology and Media- and Communication Studies at the University of Göttingen and the University of Oslo and received my PhD in 2014 with a study of women composers in 19. century Norway. Since 2023 I am coordinating the Centre for Arctic Humanities at UiT.
