About me

I am a PhD student in educational drama and my research ​​interest is how drama can be a tool in  learning for sustainable development, with a particular focus on economy. I explore how drama can support us in going beyond current paradigm in how we think about sustainability and economy. I research drama as a method in exploring  'imaginaries' for how sustainable societies could be organized.

As a parallel to my research, I use my alterego Clown Maja as a PhD student colleague. By looking at research with the perspective of the clown, I see other things and find new, usually more radical, angles. By having my clown with me, I get support in my own research, but the clown is also an exploration of its own on how we can face the times we are living in and handle the process of grasping the magnitude of the environmental situation.

I also teach in social science courses in the teacher program. My teaching is mainly focused on drama as a tool for learning and empowerment. My background is drama pedagogue with experience from a free theater group, schools and cultural schools.
