Lina Hoel Felde
conducts research at the University of Southern Denmark. Her research interests include people’s identity work (as an analytic vocabulary) within discursive tensions particularly related to medical environments. This interest works in step with a tight focus on methodological issues, for example, methodological discussions of the applicability of certain analytic vocabularies in order to critically discuss empirical, analytic points. This interplay of methodological discussions and empirical points reveals in her PhD dissertation within medical sociology called “Identity Work among People with Elevated Cholesterol – The Everyday Elasticity of Compliance with Medical Regimens”, which demonstrates a reflexive critique of the medical concept of compliance. She is trained as a Sociologist and MD.
