Current research

My research interests are feminist theory, sociology of family and personal life, and childhood sociology. Together with Terese Anving, I am currently researching the emerging market for private care (nannies and au pairs) in Sweden, and the effects this has on the “doing” of families (in ”Care for Children in an Era of Private Sector Services: A Study of Nannies, Children and Parents” (RJ P13-0603:1)).

Other research interests are care from the perspective of children, and care relationships outside the ‘nuclear family’, popular therapy and couple’s discourses, and qualitative methods.


I teach primarily in the “Class, gender, ethnicity” courses on the undergraduate level, and I supervise on all levels.
