Background and activities

In my doctoral research I employ Clarke's Situational Analysis in my studies of the newborn screening programme in Norway. Newborn screening for serious metabolic conditions is both a medical intervention and a public health initiative in continuous change. Its expansion is driven by many factors, including technological and scientific advancements as well as patient advocacy, and it is regulated by policy development. The aim of this project is to examine and understand the development of this important health initiative.

In the summer of 2020, with help from Marit Solbjør (ISM) and Ottar Ness (PLL), I organised and taught a digital seminar on the qualitative research method Situational Analysis (Clarke, Friese, & Washburn, 2018). We welcomed participants from several countries and enjoyed a guest lecture and question and answer session with Carrie Friese. Following the seminar, I organised a reading group and an interpretation group focussing on learning and using Situational Analysis.

In Spring 2022, together with colleagues from the Universities of Tübingen, Mainz, Munich, and Witten-Herdecke, I am helping to organise the online working conference Social Worlds, Arenas, and Situational Analyses: Theoretical Debates and Empirical Research Experiences. See here for more information on the working conference and this link for the related Call for Papers.
