I am an educational anthropologist exploring the world(s) of museums. I am particularly interested in visitor experiences and a central theme in my research is our embodied meaning-making experiences when meeting historical pasts. I am particularly interested in qualitative methodology, especially ethnographic, visual and sensory methods. Furthermore, I am interested in how museums incorporate the interpretations, narratives, and experiences of underrepresented groups in museum exhibitions and activities

As a PhD Fellow, my project researches children as museum users through an ethnographic approach at the Danish Workers Museum. I am particularly interested in children’s physical encounters with representations of the past and how children’s perspectives are incorporated into the curation of historical pasts by the museum.
