I’m the programme director of the International Social Science Programme. It is a programme that focuses on analysing and evaluating international and global issues such as, globalization, nationalism, racism, exclusion and welfare related development. The contents of the teaching are of theoretical, methodological and analytical character on different levels. In addition, I have taught several international courses, such as Socio-Cultural Theory within the Intercultural Studies Programme and shorter courses like Ethnicity in a Global Context and Cultural Change in an Age of Globalization, at CMSU, Missouri, USA; Ritsumeikan University, Kyoto, Japan,; Maastricht Center for Transatlantic Studies, The Netherlands and Universidad Nationales Autonoma de Mexico, Mexico City, Mexico. My primary theoretical interest is economic sociology and the sociology of professions. I am also interested in welfare development and the political economy of welfare states. A project in this area deals with how the production of welfare is organized affects the generalized reciprocity or solidarity in society. The main ongoing research-projects deals with engineers and their professional projects, teachers and teacher education in relation to scientific knowledge in teacher-programms and elderly's (65+) participation in the labor market or as self-employed.
