About me

PhD student in geography focusing on human geography at Stockholm University.

My dissertation with the working title Grazing the Negev engages with various forms of territorializations and landscape productions in Israel and Palestine. I am particularily interested in how the practice of grazing shapes a landscape, both socially and ecologically. Grazing is a form of land use that often is done on land that is simultaneously used for other, parallel purposes, for example in forests. With expecting changes towards a warmer climat, this practise may become increasingly important in Sweden. Part of my field studies are done in Israel, in the semi-arid region surrounding the city Beer'sheva. 

I am currently part of the exhibition Fieldworks at Kalmar Konstmuseum where I have been working on the fieldguide Varaktigt övergiven with Henrik Andersson (artist), Maja Lagerqvist (human geographer) and Axel Andersson (historian) 

Since 2014, I am running the magazine Geografier.
