Personlig profil


I am an urban ecologist and environmentalist, a thinker-activist and transdisciplinary scholar who is not so much interested in analyzing how the world is, but rather how to affect its becomings. My current research evolves around four interrelated interests: 


* Environmental Humanities and more-than-human and feminist geographies. I look into urban natures and post-industrial landscapes in and around the the city and how they are potentially sites for multispecies commoning. I work with the notion of the commons both as territory and as a community. I am intereseted in processes of commoning that open up for pathsways for reparative environmental futures. I work with embodied knowledge production to welcome sensory, collective forms of knowing. I draw on theories and practices from eco-feminism and environmental humanities to engage with the more-than human and eco-logical world-making practices.


* Research Creation, embodiment and situated knowledge.  For instance how research creation, art and embodied forms of knowing can lead to transdisciplinary discovery outside of established disciplines. Here I draw on arts-based methodologies, aesthetic theory and situated, embodied knowledges. Working collaboratively with performers, film-makers and sound-artists enrich my academic practice, and I have in my collaborations been a co-creator and curator of films, site-specific walks and performances, performance lectures and exhibitions.

* Citizen studies, participatory design and activism, in particular how activism unfolds as site-responsive negotiations. I am interested in how activism and unfold prefigurative politics relating to urban societal and environmental change. Currently I am intersted in how planetary movements can prefiguratively change the hegemnoies of urban development. Here I draw on citizen studies and notions of performativity in spatial and political theory, co-design and urban studies.

* Food culture and regenerative agriculture for environmental change I am interested in how changes in our food culture can nurture a regenerative change of spoils and potentially prefigure sustainable and just environmental futures. I am inspired by the regenerative agriculture and agroecology movement and draw on thinking and activism from Vandana Shiva and pluriversal knowledges from indegenous epistemologies and pluriversal ontologies.



I am currently an associate professor at Department for Communication and Arts, and have been employed at Roskilde University since 2011. I have been teaching in topics such as aesthetic theory, situated methods, participatory design and performative urbanism. I currently collaborate with people in Chile, Brazil, Canada, Finland, Sweden, US and Denmark.
