About me



Anna Lund is an Associate Professor of Sociology at Stockholm University. She is also a faculty fellow at Center for Cultural Sociology, Yale University. Cultural sociological perspectives and ethnographic methods characterize her research, as well as a theoretical concern with social change and cultural transformation under conditions of adversity. Her work has centered on topics as diverse as cultural policy and youth theater, artistic education and gender awareness, websites and online games targeting young people, the cultural and social meaning of retirement, and cultural entrepreneurship in music festivals. Her current research interests include school achievement and multicultural incorporation, including a theoretical interest in migrant youth's opportunity structures in relation to social and symbolic structure, and school and family networks, and local communities.
