Fauske holds a bachelor and a master degree in social anthropology from the University of Bergen. Both degrees are related to indigenous people studies, the study of political discourse, media analysis and the nation-state, while the master thesis also deals with kinship, land, tikanga (custom) and law. The MA thesis “Embracing the land” Maori and Pakeha in Aotearoa New, concerns relations between the indigenous people of New Zealand (Maori), and the descendants of British settlers (Pakeha).
Since the completion of her MA degree, Fauske has worked at the university of Bergen as a teaching assistant at the Department of Anthropology, and as a research assistant at The Cultural History Collections. She is now working at Bergen Museum, The Cultural History Collections, and is currently engaged in the PhD project Small, Big Places - Constructing Place In Vanuatu (Malekula, Vanuatu); under the supervision of Dr. Knut Rio within the framework of the Pacific Alternatives project.
