Solveig Laugerud is a postdoctoral researcher in EVIDENTLY RAPE a Convergence Environment funded by UIO:Life Science.
Laugerud defended her PhD thesis “The Legible Rape Victim: How Disciplinary Discourses in the Legal System create a New Victim Identity” in 2020. In her thesis, Laugerud analyzes how rape victims become entangled in a network of experts that discipline their conduct after a rape. Laugerud’s dissertation, which is based on qualitative analysis of legal decisions from the Compensation Authorities and criminal courts as well as interviews with female victims of sexual violence, shows how the disciplinary discourses in the Legal System on the one hand increases victims agency, and on the other hand, increases victims responsibility of the outcome of the case.
Laugerud has previously been a guest researcher at the «Center for the Study of Law and Society» at Berkeley Law.
Previously Laugerud worked at the Centre for Gender Research at University of Oslo and the Norwegian Centre for Violence and Traumatic Stress Studies.
Laugerud combines perspectives from Sociology of Law, Criminology, Gender Research, medical anthropology, Science and Technology Studies in her research. Her research interests are:
- Knowledge production and knowledge translation
- Interpretation of evidence in the Legal System
- Sexual Violence
- Victims and victims’ rights
