Personlig profil



I am an interdisciplinary feminist scholar and PhD fellow in the Social Science Department. My current research works to understand trans and non-binary people's experiences of care in the Danish socio-political and socio-medical contexts. This project works to follow around trans care within Denmark e.g. it works to understand how cis-and hetero-norms about care circulate and affect legal and medical policy relating to trans-specific healthcare, and how these norms and policies affect trans and non-binary people as they navigate these systems. Rooted in queer and transfeminist theory, affect theory, and feminist new materialism, this project uses ethnography, interviews and other qualitative methods (fx. autoethnography, "document analysis" etc).

In working with issues related to the discipline of trans, non-binary and queer expression, I work to engage myself and my work within critical discussions and evaluations raised by trans and queer activists. As such, I consider my research as part of a larger activist network and discussions.
