I am working on a PhD project entitled ’The Impact of History in Bahrain today. Historicity, Religious Identity and Democratisation’. The project intends to collect and analyse local uses and understandings of history and historical identities in the Arab Gulf State of Bahrain. Thus the project takes as its point of departure the Danish investigations of cultural history in the Gulf, developed through interdisciplinary research expeditions since the 1950’s. The project is based on ethnographic field work in Bahrain and runs from February 2007 until January 2010.

My research focuses on topics related to repatriation of cultural heritage and the relationship between materiality and sociality. The primary purpose of my PhD project is, through an analysis of selected repatriation cases concerning Inuit, to crystallize some central patterns in the argumentation used by the different stakeholders in their claims for cultural heritage. I’m interested in what national and imperial importance the west ascribes to the possession of colonial cultural heritage, and how the exact same objects are being staged by indigenous peoples and newly independent states as a means of power in the process of identity formation and cultural revitalization.

I take an interest in the history of anthropology. Having studied the history of anthropology in the ancient periods, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the Enlightenment period, I now deal with antropology in Romanticism. This is an period in which expeditions become an important means of data collection. The savages of the Enlightenment are turned into primitive people with an emphasis on the distiction between nature and culture. This is also the period in which racial theories are being developed.

My research focuses on the history of ice core research in Greenland from around 1970 to the mid-1990’s. Ice core research is a research area within the field of modern, interdisciplinary climate research, and as such I study the political, economic, scientific and technological factors that have influenced the development of ice core research. One of my main focuses is on how the challenges of working in the field in a remote and extreme environment drilling several kilometres through the ice cap, has played a role in the organisation of the international ice drilling programs and in the development of ice core research in general.

Through an overall exploration of access to land in peri-urban areas of Maputo, Mozambique, my ongoing PhD project focusses on subjective and shared temporal and spatial meaning-making processes. By building a concrete house, the individual is creating his life anew, thus indicating new temporal trajectories towards still unknown horizons.

I am currently working on the PhD project entitled: "Eighteenth century Danish travel literature and the development of a modern science and literature":

Eighteenth century Danish travel literature has to a great extent not been the object of an academic inquiry. This projects goal is to cover this lack of academic inquiry. To do so is interesting for more reasons. First of all the development of a modern empirical science in the eighteenth century was closely connected to the development of travel literature in the same period. Scientific travel was very prestigious in the period and the literature describing it served as a presentation of Danish science to a greater European audience.  This project will describe the different paradigms guiding these scientific expeditions. Second of all because the sensitive travel literature in the late century played an important role for the development of a political public sphere (in Habermas’ sence) in Denmark. This means that the birth of an individual formed prose in Danish literature was intertwined with a political engagement in a yet fragile public sphere.

”Haunted houses”, my research project, is part of the research programme ”Limits of reason, new perspectives in anthropological studies of magic, social technology, and uncertainty”. My focus is on relationships between the materiality of the physical house and the more airy phenomena ascribed to haunted houses. In relation to the network of field studies I am especially concerned with ways of perceiving and representing spatial and physical surroundings, particularly in regard to the ways they are interpreted and related to supernatural phenomena.

My PhD concerns ideas of science and internationalism in Antarctic exploration between roughly 1895 and 1957, with particular attention to British and Nordic discourses. I am especially interested in the way values and political commitments were (and are) embedded in Antarctic research and its related institutions.
