About me

Doctoral student

Section for Child and Youth Studies



I am currently teaching courses in the Teacher Education Programme for Primary School, Specialising in School-Age Education and Care.


My main research interests are youth, language ideologies and space in contemporary Sweden. I have published papers on the contemporary urban vernacular "förortsslang" and youths discussion who the authentic speaker of the register is.

I am also interested in ideology, semiotics and aestetics of far right political groups.
