Background and activities

My main taska are to market the facilities and services at the Medicine and Health Library, and to further develop the physical premises of the library into an interdisciplinary arena for students and staff. Contact me if you have ideas for events or exhibitions in the library.

I coordinate the UX-forum at UB together with Anne Lorange. UX = user experience! Our aim is to increase awareness of the importance of involving users in the development of library services, to share experiences across sections of the library and to learn new methods and tools for user involvement.

Tasks:

  • User-oriented library development (UX library design)
  • Communication and engagement
  • Web pages and social media (Member of the Web team)
  • Exhibitions and events in the library

 

PhD project

Between art and science: Renderings of the body in contemporary exhibitions (NFR, KULVER 2010-2014)

My aim in this project is to explore how the material discursive borders of art and science are drawn, negotiated and redrawn, in contemporary exhibitions about the body's microcosm. The body does not only figure as representation in contemporary exhibitions, it also becomes present as a bodily subject exploring the exhibition in space and time. In addition to analysing the scientific and artistic renderings of the body, my aim is therefore also to critically examine the staging of different subject positions implicit in the exhibition designs. Theoretically the project is mainly inspired by science and technology studies (STS) and feminist studies of visual culture.

The project was part of Inside out. New Images and Imaginations of the Body (scroll down for English description) led by Prof. Merete Lie (2010-2014), Department of Interdisciplinary Studies of Culture, NTNU.
