I am interested in how representations of the concept of nature are created in relation to the Swedish national park tourism. I focus on how the concept of nature is imagined and constructed by the touristic operations that take place in the national parks. Through my dissertation, I would like to create an understanding of how the national parks and the tourism within them affects societal imaginaries about nature.

A Climate Festival that Crossed Boarders
"It has almost been three months since I, together with two colleagues, could enjoy the climate festival that we had been planning for almost half a year. It was pure pleasure to finally being able to harvest the fruit of our work. I would lie if I said it was easy to organize a climate festival, but I would also lie if I would say that it was not one of the most inspirational things I have done. Now, with some distance to it – I will share my experiences and invite you to take part of one of my latest projects, The Drivhuset Climate Festival".
