I'm a senior lecturer in English Studies and have since I received my PhD in 2008 taught a number of terms at SOL, as well as at the University of Gothenburg and Kristianstad University. I teach English literature, English language proficiency, and Academic writing, and I'm passionate about giving my students the tools they need to partake of the wealth of human culture as well as themselves contribute to society in an efficient and responsible way. In my own research, I'm primarily interested in how we use our spatial understanding of the world in literary texts, for example how texts represent the experience of knowledge and undertainty in visual and spatial terms such as "clear", "delimited", or "conclusion". Metaphors are never innocent tools but form part of how we understand our world and ourselves.
