Person

My research interests and expertise are in the area of media and political engagement. Within this broad area, my work falls in two main strands; First, my published work primarily concerns social movement media practices in the context of both radical left and far-right activism. A second line of inquiry involves audience research on the interplay between television entertainment and cultural citizenship.

In my current post-doc position, I am involved in the international research project Media Experiences, funded by the Marianne and Marcus Wallenberg Foundation (2013-2016). The project concerns production and audience research of drama, documentary and reality formats in Denmark, Sweden and Great Britain. In this project, my work relates to media fandom, political documentary audiences and issues around the role of popular culture in shaping civic identity and engagement.
