Personal profile


In my PhD project I intend to follow queer affects in bureaucratic migration spaces in Denmark. I am interested in how geopolitics, truth and queerness is constructed in the process of seeking asylum based on sexual and/or gender identity. 

I am inspired by feminist, queer and affect theory as well as post(de)-colonial perspectives.
