Hanne Kirstine Adriansen is a human geographer who has specialised in international studies and education. Her PhD was on pastoral mobility in Senegal and her post doctoral research concerned land reclamation in Egypt. Currently, Hanne teaches on the international Masters programme Anthropology of Education and Globalisation. Through the years, Hanne has acquired a practical and critical understanding of the social and cultural processes involved when working with different scientific communities. Her extensive fieldwork experience stems from research in francophone West Africa, North Africa/the Middle East, and Australia, where she has worked in close collaboration with local universities and other institutions. Hanne takes advantage of different theoretical and methodological approaches, which in turn have fuelled my interest for multi-methods and for the philosophical implications of combining different approaches and working across disciplines. Hanne has co-edited three research monographs and acts as peer reviewer for numerous research journals within geography, development, and education.
