Talks and media appearances

As my CV shows, I have been in charge of a range of courses in which I have conducted lectures and seminars at University of Birmingham, Aarhus University and University of Copenhagen. Occasionally I also work as a guest lecturer on courses planned by others. In addition I have given talks for various societies, cultural institutions, etc. with a point of departure in my work, and I have disseminated my research in various media.
