Turið Hermannsdóttir

Turið Hermannsdóttir, PhD, postdoc in anthropology at Aarhus University, is an expert in matters of reproductive and sexual health and rights. Her recent PhD project explores untold reproductive stories in the context of the restrictive abortion legislation in the Faroe Islands. Thematically she explores areas of belonging, citizenship, change and moralities. What draws her attention is inequalities and boundaries, the unjust and lived experiences. Currently she is a postdoc in the Gendered Island Future project, which explores the intersections of motherhood and social change in an island context. The work package she leads seeks to explore when motherhood, either as a personal experience or institution, is challenged or otherwise experienced or done differently.
