The role of mothers in doing the political was the topic of my PhD at the Department of Sociology. Lund University. After a post at IMER (International Migration and Ethnic Relations) in Malmö City College. I joined the Department of Gender Studies in 1998. My research interests centre on issues of gender, inequality and visions of gender justice (and resistance to these visions). Central to my research is to understand how gender and sexuality, class and”race”/ethnicity do the social and make the political at the cross-roads between personal lives: diverse forms of belonging and national and transnational institutions. Questions of colonial legacies, Global North /Global South relations (with special focus on Latin America) and racism as well as the diversified forms of resistance and organisation to old and new forms of power have stayed with me through all the work I have done. My research has developed in a critical dialogue with feminist and other theoretical and methodological contributions that make a strong case for emancipatory social science.
