Short presentation

My research is concerned with gaining critical reflexive knowledge about power, justice and the politics of nature and landscape. Current empirical interests include modernity and nature conservation in Sweden; Power and cultural geographies of land reclamation on Gotland 1850-1950; Critical assessments of wind power planning. I currently teach several courses on environmental justice, globalization and resource geographies.
