Research at Medical Museion
In the last couple of years, our research group has expanded and evolved. You can visit our project pages by clicking here, and please click here to visit our staff gallery for individual interests and publications.
Medical Museion is a combined museum and interdisciplinary research group, and the relationship between the two is at the heart of our identity. Our disciplinary backgrounds span medical humanities, history and philosophy, museology, anthropology, science studies, science communication, and arts and design research. Common interests include medicine and the body as both topic and material culture; how the worlds of laboratory, clinic, and everyday life interrelate; and how these themes can be exhibited and collected. Projects provide places for differing perspectives to meet, and for an ongoing attention to what kinds of knowledge we produce and for whom.
The group is led by Professor Ken Arnold, and in 2019 consists of 3 Associate Professors, 1 Assistant Professor, 2 Postdocs and 5 PhD students along with Professor Emeritus and previous director Thomas Söderqvist, guest researchers, interns, and collaborators. Our graduate students are part of the Programme in Medicine, Culture, and Society, and we also offer supervision for Bachelor and Masters thesis projects.
Medical Museion is a Section of the Department for Public Health in the Faculty of Health & Medical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen, and also hosts CBMR‘s Program for Metabolic Science in Culture.
Proposals for papers are welcomed for a panel stream on ASTS for the DASTS conference to be held. June 2-3 in Aarhu
Text as technology for care and understanding is an upcoming PhD course, asking what ‘text’ is, and how and when ‘text’ matters in practices of education, medicine, care, hybrid art, exhibitions and research. To explore these questions and their implications, we bring...

In my previous blog post, I invited you on a virtual conceptual tour into the imaginary of The Living Room. Today I wish to dwell on the conception of care at museums and propose extending our sense of what it means to care beyond our inclinations to save at all...
The sonic arts have long been fascinated with accessing and revealing phenomena unavailable to direct aural perception. Seeking above, under or altogether beyond our scope of auditory perception – pursuing cries of bats, tectonic rumble, and electromagnetic fields –...

In this blog post, I invite you on an introductory guided tour into the conceptual imaginary of the Living Room at Medical Museion. Let me begin with a story. In 1940, a wig was donated to Medical Museion. It was the colour of strawberries and had belonged to a...
As I attempt to grow Pink Oyster Mushrooms in my office at home (in a very low-fi DIY version) I am equally disgusted and excited by the presence of the mycelia. I have never tried growing any sort of mushroom before and the process triggers lots of questions and...
