My research interests have predominantly been Swedish and French poetry, in particular politics and ideology in late 20th century Swedish poetry.

Lately, however, I have been mostly interested in literary prose. My current project on how Swedish proletarian fiction has been translated into English and published in the UK and the US is connected to the nationwide research program "Cosmopolitan and Vernacular Dynamics in World Literatures", of which I am a member of the organizing committee. In collaboration with colleagues from the Department of Political Science and the Faculty of Engineering I am also researching contemporary literary narratives of climate change.

I teach on the undergraduate levels in comparative literature and on the master program Literature - Culture - Media, where I give the course "Literature and Intercultural Understanding".
