Gender and Ethnicity
I am a researcher, teacher and consultant in communications, addressing ethnic and gender equality issues. I have a Ph.D. and am Associate Professor at Communication Studies at Roskilde University.
Currently, I am finishing a research project about Danish exhibitions of 'exotic' people around the turn of the twentieth century. From 2006-2009, I was a researcher in the EU Project VEIL, which focuses on debates concerning head- and body coverings of Muslim women. I am one of the national coordinators for the network MigraNord; a network of scholars working with media representations and racial/ethnic minorities in the Nordic countries. In addition I work as a consultant in my own company Q & A. My goal is to increase equality between ethnic minorities and the majority of the population; as between women and men.
I offer tools to avoid discrimination when planning communication, working environment and integration by including thoughts of ethnicity, gender and sexuality. It results in working place diversity and a more inclusive society.
