Having been educated in the U.S., I returned to Sweden in 1980 and have been professionally active here since then. Most broadly, my work focuses on media and democracy, from the horizons of late modern social and cultural theory. More specifically, I often address the theme of democratic participation, in particular in relation to the digital media. I explore factors that can both promote and hinder civic engagement. Active in European academic networks and events, I have also been a visiting scholar at several universities, especially in France, as well as in Scotland, South Africa, and the U.S. My recent publications include Media and Political Engagement (Cambridge University Press, 2009), the co-edited volume Young People, ICTs and Democracy (Nordicom, 2010), as well as a series of journal articles and book chapters.
