University Science Education
My work addresses forms of knowledge, their different politics, socio-material organization and historical transformations. At the heart of my concern with education is an interest in how what we know and how we organize teaching is imbued with value, and is shaped by and itself shaping social and governmental relations.
My current postdoctoral research focuses on the relation between research and education in the university of today. Taking its point of departure in a strategic initiative in University of Copenhagen to integrate research in teaching, the aim of this work is to elucidate current conditions and diverse circumstances for such integration across different disciplinary traditions and educational programs. You can read more about this project here.
In my research, I combine ethnographic and historical approaches. I have previously explored the changing ideas and practices of interdisciplinarity in Danish high school education and its relations to broader political and educational movements and techniques of government. I have also worked on issues of work life and governance in Danish elderly care in relation to questions of standardization and self-management.
I currently teach courses on university pedagogy and an introductory course for new PhD students at science, but I have also taught qualitative methods, organisation and management, sociological approaches to communication, as well as science and technology studies.
