I am Professor in strategic communication, Ph.D. in Media and Communication Studies.
My research interests are primarily in the area of strategic communication (which is also termed communication management and corporate communication). Within this area I have mainly focused on organizational communication and the mutual dependent relationship between organizational communication and public relations. More specifically, I have written texts concerning fields such as: communication in change processes; strategic listening; crisis communication; ICT (intranet) and organizational learning, organizational identity and image.
In 2002 I received my Ph.D. at the Department of Sociology, Media and Communication Studies at Lund University. The aim of my doctorial dissertation is to study if and how intranets are interpreted and used as medium for communication and learning. Thus, I studied organizational learning and ICT, or with another term knowledge management, from a communicative perspective. The theoretical points of departure in the dissertation are Karl E. Weick’s theory of organizing, Lev Vygotsky’s social cultural perspective on learning, and Jean Lave and Etienne Wenger’s theory on communities of practices.
