Anna has a background in Social Anthropology and Gender Studies, and got her PhD in Sustainability Science from Lund University in 2014. In her PhD thesis Who is Marching for Pachamama? An Intersectional Analysis of Environmental Struggles in Bolivia under the Government of Evo Morales Anna explored environmental politics and movements in contemporary Bolivia, engaging feminist and postcolonial perspectives.
In her recent work, Anna has continued to explore the power dynamics involved in environmental meaning making in different contexts, using feminist and postcolonial theory and intersectional analysis. In her postdoctoral project she studies environmental activism in a Swedish and European context. Her most recent article Young activists in muddy boots: Fältbiologerna and the ecological turn in Sweden, 1959-1974, co-authored with David Larsson Heidenblad, tells the story of how a youth environmental organisation became increasingly politically radical during the 1960s. Other on-going research projects concern climate justice mobilizations between activism and art, and resistance to mining.
In parallel to this, Anna continues to elaborate feminist and intersectional scholarship on climate change, with recent publications in collaboration with feminist researchers Annica Kronsell and Malin Henriksson. She is frequently engaged to give public lectures on this topic. Furthermore, she is exploring walking as a method, and has organized "walkshops" with students, researchers and artists.
