Biography

My research draws on a combination of resources from science and technology studies (STS), cultural history and mobility studies. I am particulate concerned with transnational relations, history of knowledge and spatial humanity/digital humanity. My current project explores how Digital Humanities takes place in actual practices, and by what means. The project will investigate Folklore Collections and historical archives as sites for digital Humanity.

My PhD thesis (2013) is a broad historical study of how roads have been conceptualized discussed and built by setting transnational relations (particular German-Norwegian relations) into play, in the period 1800 – 1942. How was this material culture – the road – done by forming different versions of roads, and what do roads do in relation to landscapes?
