Ana Graviz is a professor at the Södertörn University and she received her Ph.D. in education in 1996 at Stockholm University. Her doctoral thesis Introduction of media literacy in schools: An educational problem? was based on a qualitative and longitudinal study of the introduction of media literacy in preschool and elementary school. The aim of the study was to elucidate the factors and the interaction of factors that formed the opportunities, constraints and obstacles in introducing media literacy in primary schools. Her activities within the educational field include several knowledge areas concerning education, interculturality, media, communication, critical theory and didactics. She has participated in several cross-cultural and multidisciplinary research projects. Currently, she is involved in two projects: Youth multimodal design: How digital media can be used for expression and reflection (Södertörn University) and Multimodal representations and the construction of knowledge - A project to improve knowledge in higher education through a dual perspective theory and performance (Södertörn University together with Örebro University, Dalarna University. University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, and Malmö University).
