Short presentation

My work is centred on qualitative discourse analysis of news media and political representations of stigmatised urban areas in Sweden. By employing a constructionist and postcolonial perspective I aim to deconstruct and critically counter representations of people and places in segregated Swedish cities, thus creating an understanding of the process of stigma and its relationship with residential segregation.

Keywords: diskursanalys stigmatisering boendesegregation postkolonialism
