In my dissertation project Choirographies, I investigate choirs and their members in different urban and rural places in contemporary Sweden. I highlight the role of music and religion for members in Swedish sacred- and secular choirs. Based on this, I investigate what choirs can tell us about contemporary Sweden? The research is situated in between music geography and geography of religion.
My research interests focus mainly on identity, capital, urban/ rural dimensions, postsecular theory, religion, non-religion, GIS and mixed methods.
My teaching activities focuses on the Spatial and Social Planning Programme and the Tourism Programme. In addition, I also teach geography didactic.
I am part of the graduate school at the Centre for Research on Sustainable Societal Transformation (CRS) and a member of the Centre for Geomedia Studies.
