- Social Work
My research concerns social problems, politically informed images of aging and identity formation among seniors. In my dissertation (2001) I studied the development and claims-making activities of Sweden’s two largest pensioners’ organisations. Later I have studied crime, fear and abuse and nursing home scandals as social problems for elderly people, as well as nursing home abuse & neglect as social problems.
My teaching at the School of Social Work deals with research methods, and with different aspects of ageing and eldercare.
