Eva Skærbæk

Danish citizen, live since 1993 in Norway

Work: Associate Professor at Østfold University College, Faculty of Health and Social Studies in Ostfold, Norway. Teaching also at Oslo University, Faculty of Theology

Basic academic degree: Cand.theol from Aarhus University, Denmark (1972). Dr.theol Oslo University, Norway (2001). The title of my thesis is: WHO CARES, Ethical Interaction and Sexual Difference

My latest research was a two-year field study at a psychiatric ward. The report is in Danish: Anerkendelse, Frihed og Faglighed ( Recognition, Freedom and Professionality), 2003. An article in English, based on this Study, has been published in NORA: It takes two to tango. On Knowledge production and Intersubjectivity, 2004. Soon to be published: Treat and threath, Ethical Dilemmas in Qualitative Research

My research and teaching explores the complexity of ethical dilemmas determined by the structures and norms of our society, of which I am especially challenged by the hidden ones. The main interest being how embodied interactions (and structures) are influenced by differences in sex, power, race, age and position.
