Dr Bernike Pasveer (B.)
dr. Bernike Pasveer is a sociologist. She graduated in 1992 with a PhD thesis about the question how X-ray images came to relate to the reality they depicted. She worked as a postdoc at the Centre de l’Innovation de Sociologie in Paris, and since 1996 she is assistant professor at FASoS. Between 2006 and 2010 she worked in the field of development cooperation. Her research is focused on how knowledge and technologies (can be made to) travel between contexts; on the intricate calibrations of making knowledge/technologies work in new contexts; and on how this calibrating work might be made useful when knowledge/technologies travel. Within this framework she has worked on (medical) imaging; reproductive health and freedom of choice; technologies of childbirth; the learning body in sports; the travel of medical guidelines and protocols to developing countries; and dignity & death.
