Background

Bachelors degree in Archeology and a master’s degree in Museology from the University of Oslo, 2006 - 2012: “Gjenstandskategorier som historieforteller”

PhD-project: Handwritten words and databases – documentation practices at Norwegian museums of cultural history

The main objective of my project is to investigate how the introduction of new technologies change the way museums document their collections. And in what way this change and influence how a museum object is perceived, understood and used within the museum context over time. I believe that the Critical examination of what is written, collected and documented and why, will give Insight into the practices of documentation and the knowledge paradigms on which they are based. It will also shed light on the evolution of the catalogue media and the effects of that evolution, the understanding of the Object and how this has changed over time.
