Biography

This paragraph is not available in English, therefore the Swedish version is shown.

Currently running the project ‘Intimate Sociality: Practice and Identity in Collective Housing, Human-Animal Relations and Couple Dancing’, funded by the Swedish Research Council (together with Tora Holmberg, David Redmalm and Fredrik Palm). The study engages with the expanding area of intimate relations in late modern societies and takes off from a somewhat blind spot within the research terrain: a recognition of relations that is neither commercialized associations in a market of goods, nor the nuclear family or the romantic couple.

Previous research includes studies on elites and education, ethnographic work on commercialized intimacy in the Argentine tango market space and a dissertation on Swedish debates on gender quota.

Affiliated with the SEC-research group (Sociology of Education and Culture) and the CMG-research group at the Dept of Sociology (Cultural Matters Group).
