Personal profile


My PhD thesis (Power Games: Rules and Roles in Second Life) focuses on organisations, power, hierarchies and roles in online role-play groups and my current research centers around similar issues as I study how migration and integration are mirrored in literature.

Fiction in this field can help provide information about insights gained by those who have experienced migration and integration themselves or by first and second generation immigrants.


I have worked as a lecturer of English and in teacher education since 2003, at first at Karlstad University, then at the Blekinge Institute of Technology and then, again, at Karlstad University. Since Augusti 2013, I work at Kristianstad University and Lund University.
