Personlig profil

Forskning

 

Primære forskningsfelter: social og kulturel geografi, bystudier

Min profil har udviklet sig fra bystudier og byliv, kulminerende i min doktorafhnadling fra 1993 'Byteori og hverdagspraksis' og videreført i min seneste bog (2006) 'Byens mange ansigter', til mere generelle teorier om social praksis og social rumlighed. Stikord er praksisteori, bystudier, rum og sted, geografiens historie og videnskabsteori, krop og køn, kulturel mangfoldighed.
