Om meg/bakgrunn

PhD candidate in Sociology.

From previous studies I hold a Master's degree in Social Sciences of Sport from the University of Jyväskylä (Finland), including minors of Social Sciences, Gender Studies and International Studies.


My research interests are centered around sport and society, physical cultures, inequalities and gender and youth sport and leisure activities. Theoretically I am intriguided by poststructural theories, affect studies, posthumanism and new materialisms.
Previously I have tracked gender equality policy discourses in sport using discourse analytical tools. Currently in my PhD, I am especially interested in how bodies become moved by affects and emotions in youth sport context.
