I am a senior lecturer in literary studies and publishing studies at the Department of Arts and Cultural Science at Lund university. My research has mostly concerned literature and society in different contexts. It concerns popular genres such as Nordic noir but also children's literature, bestsellers in general and comics. Some areas of special interest are issues of literary value, gender, the marketing of literature and consumer culture. I teach students in publishing studies and in digital culture.

Research

My profile in Lund University research portal

In my different research projects I have a combined interest of questions about literary aesthetics, literary value and about how literature interacts with the society at large. My research has, among other things, been involving issues of genre and how genres are influenced by the norms of society at a specific time and a specific place. The main focus has so far been on crime fiction, but I have also conducted research about children's literature and other popular genres. I also have an interest in how genres and authorships function on the book market, and how they are promoted through traditional as well as digital marketing channels. The different projects conducted have connections to the interdisciplinary field of cultural studies. Other fields of relevance are media history and publishing studies.
