About me

Senior Lecturer

Section for Child and Youth Studies

I joined the Department of Child and Youth Studies in June 2016. My background is in sociology. I received my PhD at the Department of Sociology, Stockholm University, where I also worked as an Associate Senior Lecturer. In addition, I have held post-doctoral or visiting positions at the universities of Anglia Ruskin, Birkbeck, Borås, Goldsmiths, Kyoto and Örebro.


Youth, generation, identity, class, consumtion, place, taste, moralisation.


I primarily teach on the Teacher Education Programme for Primary School, Specialising in School-Age Education and Care, and on the Master's Programme in Child and Youth Sciences.


My research focuses on the relationship between identity formation and socio-spatial differentiation in contemporary consumer culture. In my doctoral and post-doctoral work, this entailed exploring the role of moralisation processes in the formation of young white working-class identities in Britain. My current research attempts to develop the conceptual frames of social types and neo-tribes, to study the role of cultural practices in the construction of middle-class identities.
