Forskning

Fokus på social og kulturel forandringRegional speciale er på Melanesien, Papua Ny Guinea. På basis af sammenlagt ca. fire års feltarbejde, har jeg bidraget til den internationale vidensbase om religiøse bevægelser, og lokale opfattelser samt praksisser vedr. tradition, kulturarv, historie og forandring.  Tematisk speciale: menneskelig agens og forandring, værdier og handling og temporalitet. Metodiske interesser centrerer sig om visuel, materiel og digital antropologi, designantropologi og udstilling som metode. En betragtelig del af mine publikationer behandler metodiske og teoretiske problemstillinger.
