Culture and Education


I am a teacher and researcher in Gender Studies at Södertörn university since 2009. During my time at Södertörn i have conducted research about Nordic popular music online (finansed by STINT) and worked in the project "Music use in the online media age: A qualitative study of music cultures among young people in Moscow and Stockholm" funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond. At the moment i am conducting research about #MeToo in the music industry. I teach undergraduate and master level Gender Studies, and in the Teacher Training Programs at Södertörn University. I am director of studies for post graduate education in Gender Studies.

Before working at Södertörn University I wrote a dissertation on teenage girls, music culture and gender identity at Linköping University. My research has often revolved around gender, music and media. The disseration and other projects/articles often analyse cultural representations and peoples uses, experiences and production of them. Besides my work at Södertörn University I have conducted research and teaching at Linköping University, Linnaeus University and Stockholm University. Currently my reaserch focuses on music, politics and feminism in the media and exclusion and inclusion in teacher training education (Pre-School and Upper Secondary School) through interviews with students.
