Current research

My PhD project concerns ideals and practices of motherhood. I am interested in how to understand becoming a mother as both discursive and material constituted and focus of how motherhood is practiced and experienced in two different cultures Denmark and China. I also work with conflicts between motherhood and women’s other roles, such as working life.
