Academic interests

Thematic: neoliberal development, infrastructures, energy, electricity, sustainability, trust, post-conflict settings

Regional: East Africa, northern Uganda

PhD Project: My research deals with the social impact of new grid access in rural areas in northern Uganda. I look at how electricity is introduced and how it comes to influence everyday practices and social organization. More specifically, I am concerned with how electricity contributes to reaching ideals of ‘the good life’.

Background

Kirsten holds a bachelor's degree (2016) and master's degree (2018) in anthropology from Aarhus University. Her master's thesis with the title 'I did not do any bad things: Negotiating guilt after war in northern Uganda' explores the sensitive processes of post-war reintegration by focusing on former rebel fighters and abductees' experiences of stigmatization by kin and community members.
