My main interests are in the area of legal linguistics, with a focus on the potential of language to (re)create social coherences and the question, how language users act trough language. My aim is to uncover power relations by linguistic analysis, as texts not only describe given realities, but they may instead function as a form of social action themselves.
I have an educational background in the Swedish and the German language and I also studied elementary school education.
