Mette Kia Krabbe Meyer



I am a ph.d. from the Department of Arts and Cultural Studies specialised in photography. My work is interdisciplinary, and I combine the theory of photography and media studies with cultural history and the history of science.

At the Royal Danish Library I have contributed to the exhibitions Det er løgn. Forskerfusk og forfalskninger (2012), Lay Down Your Arms (2014), and Blind Spots. Images of the Danish West Indies colony (2017-2018) curated with research librarian Sarah Giersing and assistant professor Mathias Danbolt

At the moment I am investigating the visual culture of the former Danish West Indies. I am engaged in digital humanities, and together with Lars Kjær and Michael Hockenhull I organized the workshop Representing History Through Data. Recently I also organized the international conference Unfinished Histories. Art, Memory, and the Visual Politics of Coloniality with Mathias Danbolt.
