My anthropological work relates to migration issues, more specifically to Islam and Muslims in Europe, with a particular focus on Germany, and irregular migrants in Norway.

 

In my current postdoctoral fellowship that forms part of the Department's ISP prosject: “Denaturalizing difference: Challenging the production of global social inequality” I will pursue theoretical exploration of the denaturalizing of difference and the study of social inequality drawing on my ethnographic material on religiously devoted Muslim youth in Germany and irregular migrants in Norway. I see the position as a unique opportunity to draw further upon and make relevant the thick empirical data material I already have from long-term fieldwork. Since my research interests lie generally in contributing to social anthropological perspectives and theoretical development of how we understand difference and marginalization, inclusion/exclusion, over the long run I hope to use this study as a framework to further investigate processes of social inequality also with methodological implications.

 

My research interests include focus on the refiguration of the subject-citizen, migration dynamics, political mobilisation, marginalization, border processes and technologies of control. My PhD thesis in Social Anthropology (at École des hautes études en sciences sosiales/ Humboldt University, completed in 2010) examines Muslim youth’s religious identity formation and their engagement with Islam in everyday life in Germany. Through long-term ethnographic fieldwork in Muslim religious organization and their participants I examine the collective content of religious identity formation and processes of differentiation. Engaging with anthropological approaches to Islam as a discursive tradition, I look at how religious identification among these Muslim youth in Berlin is continuously crafted within social spaces and structures. In particular, I discuss how desires of women (as of men) are socio-historically constructed, arguing against the universalised perspectives of liberal-humanist interpretation of ‘freedom’ and ‘agency’. I further look at their understanding of what it meant to be a Muslim was informed in various ways by the public representation of Islam and Muslims in Germany. In my thesis and in several published book chapters, I particularly analyze how local configurations and expressions of religiosity among the women were shaped in relation to processes on various scales. In the book publication of the thesis, I also discuss the changing role of religion in an urban European setting, how religious authority is restructured and the formation of gender identity in relation to religious, societal, and family ideals, ideas and sets of values.

 

 My latest fieldwork on irregular migrants in Norway was part of the RCN (NFR) funded project ‘Provision of welfare to irregular migrants’. This project investigates the provision of welfare to irregular migrants in Norway through examining the relationship between law, institutional practices and irregular migrants’ experiences. My own work examines how regulations and policies of the nation-state and at the EU level, as well as local institutional practices, have real and complex effects on the subjective experiences of irregular migrants. Informed by poststructuralist theoretical perspectives, I also focus on the construction of ‘irregularity’ by state power and everyday discourses and migrants experiences of the ‘illegality’ status, which is intricately linked to how ‘illegality’ is constructed. Furthermore, I study not only the politics of exclusion and processes of marginalization, but also discuss the agency of irregular migrants and their political mobilization. 

I am a board member of the interdisciplinary network IMER (International Migration and Ethnic Relations), UiB. IMER has been an interdisciplinary unit at UiB for almost 20 years, consisting of experts from many different disciplines, including law and the humanities, but with a predominance of social scientists. As part of IMER, I have contributed to creating an important and inspiring environment for scholars and students with an interest in IMER research at UiB. Through IMER, we have generated several large research projects with funding from RCN and the EU.
