My research interests relate to Swedish, Scandinavian and European cinema, especially with a focus on popular and contemporary film, and this has been so since I wrote my dissertation (2004) on Swedish genre cinema 1985-2000.

My teaching has covered many areas within film studies. I have, for example, regularly taught corses on Swedish Cinema, Film and digital media, and Film studies for teachers.

I am the founder and principal editor of Journal of Scandinavian Cinema (Intellect).


About the research

My current research interests include history and remediation in contemporary cinema, (super-) popular national European films, international awards and circulation, marginalized identities in mainstream cinema, and participatory cultures.

I am also dedicated to facilitating international research exchange relating to Swedish and Scandinavian cinema, including the following inititatives:

Co-founder and primary editor of Journal of Scandinavian Cinema, published by Intellect since 2011.

Co-founder and inaugural co-chair of SCMS' Scandinavian Special Interest Group, 2014-15.

Initiator and organizer of Lübeck Film Studies Colloquium, since 2014.
