Personal profile

Research areas

Dr. Dorte Jagetic Andersen is senior researcher in the Centre for Border Region Studies, with a background in European Ethnology and European Continental Philosophy. Her main research interest concerns identity-formation in areas influenced by the presence of geopolitically drawn borders, and she has published extensively and made major theoretical and empirical contributions within the field of border studies. For a long period, she focused her research on conflict and their resolution(s) and has been preoccupied with ethnographic studies in the border regions in the former Yugoslavia, including Istria, Neum-Neretva and the Vukovar area in Slavonia. Here she has studied how images of regional belonging reconciling tense relations between past, present and future were appropriated in local responses to the violent conflicts of the 1990s, thus working as counterweight to developments of nationalism, which are widespread in these regions. More recently her contributions in the field of border studies and conflict-resolution include research on Northern Ireland and multiple expressions of borderlands resilience more broadly. She also works in projects studying how borders and identity express in European civil society mobilization as well as among cross-border commuters in the Danish-German border region.
