Personal profile

Research profile

I am currently part of the research project PLACES, with Svend Brinkmann, Rasmus Birk, and Sebastian Tobias-Renstrøm. The goal of the project is to investigate the relationships between ADHD and anxiety, and the social, cultural, and spacial contexts that individuals live in. Specifically, we want to investigate how individuals co-create their own contexts and life situations, including here ways that may help their everyday lives and alleviate their symptoms. Simultaneously we also want to examine how the contexts and situations individuals exist within affect them, their everyday lives, and their general life with anxiety or ADHD.

My Ph.D.-project was part of the research center, The Culture of Grief, and supervised by Anders Petersen and Svend Brinkmann. With the forthcoming diagnostic classification of Prolonged Grief Disorder as my starting point, I researched the societal meaning of death and its socio-cultural transformation. Via ethnographic fieldwork, that I called gonzo sociology, I discussed how grief now exists in an ongoing tension-filled fight for the rights to define what grief is, whether or not it could be seen as a disease and if so how it should be treated.
