Culture and Education


I started as a senior lecturer in Gender Studies at Södertörn University in 2009. The same year I defended my dissertation in Culture Studies about teenage girls' music use and gender identity at Linköping University. During the past ten years my research has focused on popular music, streaming services and feminism in the music industies, using feminist theory and often intersectional perspectives.

My research interests combine studies of gender, music and digital media. Expressed in for example feminist studies of algorithmic culture on Spotify, but also in research on how belonging in terms of nation and gender is expressed in conservatory education's practice, policy and marketing. One of my ongoing projects, 'Conservatory cultures', focuses on how nation and gender are constructed and percieved in higher classical music education.
