I see research challenges in studying and making visible experiences and discourses that are surrounded by silence, a taboo. A gender perspective holds together my work, from feminist science studies to norm-critical interventions.
I work in two research projects.
The prostate, bodies, and sexuality
The first project is Constant Torment. Discursive Contours of the Aging Prostate with Ass. Prof. Ericka Johnson (Tema Technology and social change, LiU) as project leader. I work with questions of how men construct sexuality and masculinity in relation to prostate operations. I am also interested in what types of masculinity and sexuality are constructed in health care meetings around prostate surgery. In the project I collaborate with Carina Danemalm-Jägervall, sexologist in Region Kronoberg, Sweden.
Interactive research about interventions against abuse in health care
The second project I work on partly builds on my PhD and postdoc work, and deals with analyzing interventions against abuse in health care. Prof. em. Barbro Wijma (Gender and Medicine, LiU) is project leader. In the project I am interested in studying how an intervention model, being a drama pedagogical ethics training, makes visible, threatens, or changes relationships and values in medical practice.
I teach in the medical humanities at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and supervise student reports at the Faculty of Arts and Sciences as well as the Institute of Technology.
