Personal profile


I am interested in bringing a gender studies perspective to theories of social work. I am particularly interested in how power structures in different ways affect social work practice and the possibility to develop critical methods of antidiscriminatory work within social work organisations.

In my doctoral dissertation I use intersectional analysis to investigate how gender is made in drug abuse treatment and to examine how the formation of gender interplays with the formation of sexuality, class and ethnicity. The dissertation became the basis for exploring intersectionality as a possible tool for a critical reflexive practice in social work, an idea I explored in the book Intersectionality in social work. Theory, reflection and practice (2010) .
