  • Emerging entities: Exploring ontological effects of Ifugao ritual practices

My research is based on fieldwork among the Ifugao or Northern Luzon, the Philippines. I explore there the theoretical implications of the socio-material aspects of Ifugao ritual practices. I study the enmeshments of humans, animals and spirits in these practices with a particular focus on their ontological effects. I focus on how entities emerge through practices and I am particularly interested in exploring the role played by materials (things) in these processes of emergence. My empirical focuses are animistic sacrificial rituals and the domestication practices of Ifugao pig husbandry.

One product of research is the recently published book Pigs and Persons in the Philippines: Human-Animal Entanglements in Ifugao Rituals.

  • Infranimals: Infrastructures of lobster fishing and farming in Norway

In this recently initiated project I study the management of the red listed Norwegian lobster stock by focusing on the sociomaterial and political aspects of the infrastructures in which lobster fishing, farming and marine research are entangled. I follow professional and recreational lobster fishers, entrepeneurs of lobster farming and sea ranching and marine biologists who study lobster behaviour.

I am leader of the subtheme Rituals of the Project Anthropos and the Material: Challenges to Anthropology.
