Academic Interests

Benedikte V. Lindskog received her education in Social Anthropology from the University of Oslo. Her fields of research and interest are: Mongolia, maternal health, Asian medicine pastoralism and social and ritual organization.

Lindskog is presently working as a post-doc researcher, financed by the Norwegian Research Council, at the Section for Medical Anthropology and Medical History. Her research project concerns maternal health and protective practices among mothers in Mongolia. The project seeks to understand and analyze critically the structural, economical and social aspects and determinants in relation to maternal health in Mongolia in general, and in terms of access to health care and medical practices in particular.

Central to the project is also understanding the plural medical practices in Mongolia today; how mothers navigate within this ‘medical landscape’ and the rationales behind mothers’ choices in seeking medical treatment in order to protect themselves and their child during pregnancy, birth and infancy.
