LINDA LAPIŅA (they/them; she/her)

I work as an associate professor of Cultural Encounters at Roskilde University, Denmark. I am also a migrant and a dancer. My research focuses on bodies, affectivity and difference, from an intersectional feminist perspective. I work with affective methodologies, drawing on auto-, multispecies and sensory ethnography, memory work and arts-based methods, including dance, visual methods, performance and poetry. My recent research examines more-than-human entanglements, memory, affectivity and senses, including engagements with urban nature-cultures, water and plants.
