In 2000 I defended my PhD thesis. The thesis problematizes spatial and social power on the basis of a cultural-analytical investigation of the concept of region and its discursive use within planning debate.
Afterwards I have been preoccupied with research projects on medicine, care and health from a social and cultural perspective. Among other things I have in several articles investigated questions about organ donation and transplantation.
Today my research concerns three different fields: 1) Transnationalism, national identity, regional movements 2) Cultural perspectives on biomedicine, care and health 3) Ethnography and methodological development.
I am associate professor in ethnology at Lund University. I work as researcher and lecturer at the Department of Art and Cultural Sciences. I am director of education at the Vårdal Institute. An ongoing research project, within the Linné environment Bagadilico, is about Parkinson's disease.
