Culture and Education


I am affiliated with the Graduate School for Gender, Humanities, and Digital Cultures (GENHDI External link.) co-funded by the Swedish Research Council in collaboration with Södertorn University, Stockholm University, and Uppsala University. I also work within the research area of Critical and Cultural Theory at Södertörn University.

My main scholarly interests lie in aesthetics, embodiment, materiality, and mediation. My PhD project, supervised by Linn J. Sandberg, studies digital life writing by masculine-identified subjects in the context of mental health. It examines how sharing one's lived experience via specific digital mediums and media technologies supports one in exploring one's gendered self and coping with mental health issues.

My background is in comparative literary and media studies. I graduated cum laude in Research Master's in Comparative Literary Studies from Utrecht University, The Netherlands.

DiVA (Digitala Vetenskapliga Arkivet) is Södertörn University's system for digital publishing and for registering publications produced by researchers, teachers and students.
