Dr. Nora S. Vaage is an art historian and philosopher with a PhD in philosophy of science and ethics. From this interdisciplinary perspective she writes and teaches on a number of topics at the intersection between culture, society, and technology. She is particularly interested in questions of values and knowledge views (ethics and epistemology) and has for many years focused on bio- and eco art and biohacking. In addition to her academic work, she has occasionally worked as an art critic and curator.
Nora is Associate Professor in Art and Media Studies at Nord University, Levanger. Up until December 2020 she was Assistant Professor in Philosophy of Art and Culture at Maastricht University. She is Lead Researcher at NOBA, and is the person to contact about research connections, project proposals and ongoing research projects.
