Helle Bundgaard

Associate Professor

Primary fields of research

I am writing a collection of short stories based on my work with craft producers in Orissa, India over a period of 30 years. This engagement reflects my current research and teaching activities within Literary Ethnography, i.e. creative nonfiction. I continue my engagement with educational matters stimulated by my year long experience as Director of Studies at the Department of Anthropology. Educational matters, however, is a theme which cut across my previous fields of interest. One of these is institutional upbringing. The other is related to perceptions of quality and skill in craft making in India.

Affiliation to research groups: The Anthropology of Denmark
