Cæcilie Sloth Laursen: Midway

December 12, 2022 @ 12:00 - 14:30

On December 12th, Cæcilie Sloth  Laursen will hold her midway seminar!


She will be joined by the committee Marisa Cohn, Henriette Langstrup, and Morten Hjelholt.

About the PhD project:The project investigates the implementation of video consultations in Danish hospital outpatient clinics during the Covid-19 pandemic (and beyond). In order to follow the use and adaptation of video consultations, I have conducted multisided ethnographic fieldwork in two Copenhagen-based hospitals and in patients’ homes. I have explored the perceived benefits of the solution while also being attentive to the challenges clinicians and patients face. Through a theoretical lens of infrastructure, I aim to shed light on the often hidden infrastructural dependencies and infrastructural work that goes into making video consultations work as a consultation form at Danish hospitals, as well as how the infrastructure of the consultation itself changes when the clinic, waiting room, etc. are removed from the patient experience, and the home or workplace are enrolled in the infrastructure.

We have four regular events

  1. The TiP Salon runs weekly during the semester. We convene around constructive engagement with new publications, visitors to the group and work in progress. The meeting is open, and runs at 12:00-13:00 on Wednesdays. Please contact Zea Yde to sign up to the email list.
  2. Shut up and Write takes place every week on  Wednesdays from 13:15 to 17:00. Based on the model promoted by Inger Mewburn, we commit to writing projects on the whiteboard and write in shorter sessions with breaks.
  3. The TiP Invited Speaker Series has been running since 2018, and each year 3-4 invited speakers present their work in a public forum. All welcome.
  4. The TiP Writing Workshop takes place twice a semester, where contributions from all members of TiP are welcome. The purpose of the workshop is to give and receive feedback on ‘in progress’ work. Practically the workshop entails reading all participants’ submission, being a ‘caring opponent’ on one particular text, and participating in constructive debate about the texts.

Sporadic events

When PhD students are at the right stage of their studies, they resurrect the longstanding institution of the STS Reading Group. Previous seasons of the Reading Group can be found here
