I received my PhD (2009) in Scandinavian languages at Centre of Languages and Literature at Lund university. My thesis dealt with the discursive practice of political pamphlets in the emerging public sphere in Sweden in 1769 and in 1809–1810. In my thesis I focus on discursive strategies of legitimation and delegitimation and discuss the analytical tools for performing such analyses.
My major field of interest is the use of language in society - contemporary as well as historically. I have a broad methodological interest for discourse analysis, text linguistics and sociolinguistics.
One area where I have conducted studies in spoken as well as written discourse is health and medicine. 2010–2013 I was part of a project at The Swedish Institute for Health Sciences studying intercultural communication in the care of children with diabetes. 2015–2018 I was part of the project Metaphors in Palliative Cancer Care (MEPAC). During 2021 I was part of an Advanced Study Group at the Pufendorf Institute: Reading and Health and 2022 I a a member of the group Enhancing Empathy and Compassion. Since 2022, I am a fellow at the Birgit Rausing Centre for Medical Humanities.
Other fields of interests are political discourses and vocabulary knowledge.
I teach mostly text- or discourse-analysis in all levels. Apart from this I teach Intercultural communication in the Language Consultancy Programme. I also supervise students on all leves.
