Astrid Jespersen

Astrid Jespersen, Ph.D. in European Ethnology, on a thesis on Danish general practitioners' consultations. A primary aim of the project is to discuss the concept of commitment by studying it in practice. The project asks if the common definition of commitment as an individual competence is an adequate definition when it comes to the micro-processes of work organisation. The analytical frame of the project is inspired by actor-network theory thus involving both human and non-human elements of the consultation process.
