My PhD work concerns Palestinian women on the West Bank and their role in their households' economy. I look into how women's increasing wage work is affecting their roles in their homes and I also look at other ways than through wage work women contribute to their household economy. Examples of the latter are through management of food and maintenance of social networks. To shed light on these factors I use a wedding lunch as an example as preparations of food in such an important social event as a wedding is captures both the importance of food distribution and of showcasing their networks. I am also concerned with how religion, in this case Islam, is part of women's every day life and tie this to their roles as mothers and wives and to their households' economic management. Patriarchal relations is discussed.

In earlier research I have looked at how the increase in use of "hijab" can be related to wider societal changes and changes in Islamic practices on a local level. I have also compared the development in income for living in two former farm villages in the West Bank. In a Norwegian context I have been concerned with economic relations and equality between couples with children.
