Research

My profile in Lund University research portal

My research interests are aimed at three separate fields: gender and violence, life as a pensioner and child obesity.

Gender and violence

After working on my thesis I became even more interested in the link between legitimised violence and the construction of masculinity. How is the possibility of suppressing criminalised violence affected by the fact that violence is permitted in many masculine pursuits: within certain professions, sports and in popular culture? A forthcoming article on the theme is “Balls enough. Manliness and Legitimated Violence in Hell’s Kitchen”.

Life as a pensioner

How life as a pensioner is “done” depends on cultural factors such as gender, class, ethnicity, age and so on. My research interest is mainly directed at the group of pensioners who have the financial means to make their dreams a reality. How do they live when they themselves can choose?

Cild obesity

Here my interest lies in the link between ethnicity and class in the meeting between healthcare staff and families in which children have what is defined in a Swedish context as a serious health problem: excess weight.
