Information for students, faculty and staff regarding COVID-19. (Updated: 1 July 2020)
I am a postdoc researcher in digital sociology. My research focuses on discourses on trauma and victimisation in high-profile (social) media events.
My research interests center on discourses on high-profile (social) media events, such as terrorist attacks, as well as connective victim movements, and networked (re)imaginations of victimhood.
In my PhD thesis, and its four specific papers, I was specifically interested in digital discourses on trauma and resilience in relation to specific terrorist attacks, such as the Utøya massacre in Norway in 2011 and the Stockholm lorry attack in 2017.
My ongoing postdoc research (2020-2022), funded by the Swedish Crime Victim Authority, focuses on issues relating to how discourses of victimisation are profoundly conditioned by a networked social logic, which is effected by ongoing processes of digitalisation and datafication. These studies will look closer into aspects of victimhood in relation to hybrid media events, in connective victim movements, and in true crime media.
