Personal profile

Research

I earned my PhD in 2015 from the Department of Sociology at Lund University. Since 2015, I have taught and researched at the Department of Gender Studies where I am currently employed as associate senior lecturer. I am also Programme Director for the Social Studies of Gender Master Programme at the Graduate School. 

Currently, I am working together with Maja Sager on the project The court as an emerging arena for struggles against and about racism (2017-2020) that is funded by the Swedish Research Council within their special call for research on racism. The project explores courts as an emerging arena where political and social contestations over racism take place in Sweden. This is done through an in-depth analysis of several cases in which political struggles against and about racism have moved into courts. The purpose of the project is to understand what kind of space courts provide for protection from and debate about racism, and how different forms of activism involving anti-racism, but also racism, are mobilized.

In my previous research, I have explored historical articulations of racism, antisemitism, Islamophobia and xenophobia, mainly in Sweden, Poland and Brazil. I have also worked with the issues of social justice, law and transitional justice.
