Cultural Analyst and Artist, Associate Professor of European Ethnology. I work at The Department of Arts and Cultural Sciences, Lund University, Sweden. I’m also part of Swedish Centre for Applied Social and Cultural Analysis (SCACA), which is a collaboration between Halmstad University, Lund University and RMIT University.
My teaching is mostly in the masters programme MACA (Master of Applied Cultural Analysis) and in a Swedish Digital Cultures programme at The Department of Arts and Cultural Sciences in Lund.
My research primarily deals with themes like digital and material culture as well as cultural economy, and I also explore the interplay between art and science. I have also developed a research track about the concept Industrial Cool. This deals with the ways traditional industries are transformed in contact with ideas about a postindustrial society.
My music and artworks are related to my practices as a cultural analyst and ethnographer, and the works often emanate from research questions. Recently I have been dealing with notions of electronic ethnographic surrealism
