My main interest is how gender and power relations are expressed both in  media representations and in people's everyday activities. This also
relates to people's ability to participate in democratic processes, where media and communication science provides knowledge about the importance of media as part of community for citizenship and human rights.

Teaching

I have been teaching courses in media and communication since 2000. My main assignments are to provide courses in gender theories, journalism, media structure, communication, qualitative content analyses and ethnography. I also supervise and exam students at bachelor level assignments.

Research

Projects: 

Transmediation as aid for sensorial and cognitive impaired persons: possibilities and complications;, a subproject in the Linnaeus University Center for Intermedial Studies (IMS) investigates how disability is communicated and mediated. My part of this project is focused on the
formation of identity and gender.

REGPRESS project (2017) on local press and media audience, my part of the project was to investigate identity formation through sport and gender.

The point of departure in both projects is human rights, democracy and people's ability to participate in democratic processes where media and communication science contributes with important knowledge.
