I am Associate professor (docent) and senior lecturer at the Department of culture and media studies, Umea university, Sweden. My research interests concern narrativity, life stories, mobility among highly skilled and intersectionality. My PhD thesis was an analysis of how Polish well-educated professionals told their life stories after the fall of communism; I have also written on family stories. Another theme is international mobility of professionals - Polish doctors working in Sweden and Swedish doctors going on assignments in the global South, with aid organisations like the Red Cross or Doctors without Borders. Currently I work in two research project, one with a focus on "internationalisation" of the Swedish humanities as ideal and practice; the other investigating how adult education and museums encourage telling and sharing of life stories as a creative, inclusive and emancipatory practice.
