Bakgrunn og aktiviteter

Professor Merete Lie is leader of the Centre for Gender Research at NTNU.

My field of research is feminist technoscience. With a background in social anthropology I have been working across the interdisciplinary fields of Gender Studies and Science and Technology Studies. My research includes a variety of themes related to gender, including work research and changing technologies, and globalization. With my colleague Ragnhild Lund, I have conducted a longitudinal study of Malaysian women workers (1986-2015) in Norwegian owned industry based on biographical interviews. The longitudinal study includes field studies of the companies’ transfer of production to China. At present, my research is on welfare technologies, biopolitics, assisted reproductive technologies, medical imaging and bioart.
