Personal profile


I am part of the project "Caring for generations. A study of relationships, commitment and care in everyday family life" (VR 2018-01053, together with Sara Eldén and Terese Anving). The project analyzes stories of care between grandchildren, grandparents, and their adult children. My research focus is about  non-kinship relationships,the so called bonus relationships and theis inconcistency.

Many children grow up in reorganized families, or have parents whose parents have new partners. My dissertation examines forms of care and intimacy between a younger generation of grandchildren and an older bonusgrandparent generation where the relationship does not accure as a biological relationship but as a chosen or assigned one. Specifically, I will examine the importance of separation and reunited families for the relationship between bonus-grandchildren and bonus-grandparents.
