Teacher and researcher in political science with particular focus on environmental politics, conservation, and Indigenous issues.
I am a teacher and researcher in political science with a particular focus on environmental politics, conservation, and Indigenous peoples. My research includes studies of how power, influence, and agency is constructed and distributed in and through discourses of conservation and of Indigenous peoples. My PhD thesis explored Indigenous peoples' space for political agency in the governance and management of protected areas, with a particular focus on the Swedish and Norwegian parts of Sápmi, the traditional lands of the Sami people in northern Scandinavia. Subsequent work includes studies of Swedish climate change and consumption policy, and comparative studies of carnivore management in the Nordic countries.
I teach first- and second cycle courses in political science. I am also the coordinator for the subject teacher education programmes with specialization in civics.Close
