Starting out with an analysis of illegitimate births in 19C Sweden(1977), the focus during the 80's was on culture and class, resulting in a wide range of publications (1979, 1985,1993)The volume "Culture Builders" (1987) is translated into different languages. Processes of socialisation and the everyday experience of living with the welfare state has been a major field in a book on schooling (1998) and on sick-leave (2009). A major theme through the years has been the senses and bodily experiences, most pronounced in a volume on pain an identity(1998),on phenomenology (2003), and on the affective turn (2012). Matters on memory and monuments are dealt with separately in one volume (2007) and a survey of European Anthropology in an edited volume (2012).
