About me

My research concerns literacy practices and communication in institutional settings. An earlier project dealt with elder care, where documentation plays an increasing role. Currently, me and by colleagues are wrapping up a project which investigates information and knowledge formation related to prenatal heart faliure diagnosis. Link to project web site at Uppsala University.

My main areas of interest are discourse analysis, social semiotics, multimodality and linguistic ethnography.

For six years as a professor of Sociolingustics at Uppsala University (2012-2018) and  before that I was a professor of Swedish at Södertörn University (2018-2012). From January 1, 2019, I am head of department of the Department of Swedish and Multilingualism.


I am the supervisor of three doctoral students at Uppsala University: Linda Pfister, Sofia Orrbén and Hanna Åkerström.
