Personal profile


The cultural analysis of everyday life has been an ongoing focus in my research, for example in the arenas of consumption and media use. I have a special interest in mundane activities that often are overlooked, as routines, waiting and daydreaming. What is going on when nothing seems to happen?

Another central field is studies of national identity formations and transnational processes. In several projects I have followed the development of the transnational region of Öresund, linking Denmark and Sweden. I have also been interested in the history of transnational mobility, as in tourism and travel.
