About me

Director of Studies and Senior Lecturer at the Department of Child and Youth Studies


children, consumption, happiness, emotions, ethnography, leadership, sport


Happiness, consumption and childhood are key components in my research - published in international journals, and also in my Ph.D. dissertation (2015), Family theme parks, happiness and children’s consumption: From roller-coasters to Pippi Longstocking

With an interdisciplinary background (cultural studies and sociology), I am inspired by work in critical theory, STS and the sociology of childhood. Current interests: happiness (theory and concepts), leisure studies, corporations and the business of childhood, leadership.
