Beate Sløk-Andersen

PhD fellow

I am currently doing a PhD project with the title 'The Danish Soldier', focusing on the contemporary role and training of Danish recruits. The project is based on an ethnographic fieldwork at Danish military barracks as well as an analytical mapping of discourses in the military terrain.

Before starting my PhD, I have worked with subjects such as women’s access to military careers in the Danish military, barriers for gender equality in academia, and study habits among Danish master students.

I have quite a bit of experience with organizing seminars and giving presentations, which stems from a general interest in strengthening the dissemination of my research fields. Additionally, I teach and supervise students enrolled on the undergraduate and MA programs in Ethnology.  


Main areas of specialization:

  • Humanistic military research

  • Gender and sexuality research

  • Qualitative methods and ethnographic fieldwork

  • Cultural analysis in the intersection between formal structures and everyday practices
