MIRIAM AURORA HAMMEREN PEDERSEN

Social anthropologist, intersectional feminist writer, trans rights advocate

Welcome to my homepage!

I am an openly transgender, lesbian woman living in Oslo, Norway. I currently work within the field of LGBTQ+ education and advocacy. In my spare time, I write for the feminist blog collective Maddam on a regular basis.


I finished my PhD in social anthropology in 2020 at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, under the supervision of Professor Francis B. Nyamnjoh. My main field of interest within anthropology is ethnic and racial relations, and especially the concept of Whiteness. I have done ethnographic fieldwork in Fiji, Norway, Romania, and South Africa.

I have been active in queer/trans communities and related scenes for some years now, and I have been a board member of the Norwegian Patient Organisation for Gender Incongruence (PKI). I am a passionate proponent of intersectional and trans-inclusive feminism, and a strong supporter of sex positivity and body positivity.
