Personal profile

Research

I hold a MA in Journalism and English from Roskilde University, where I am now affiliated as a PhD fellow at the Department of Communication and Arts. Previously, I have worked as a journalist, English teacher and - also at Roskilde University - as an external lecturer in journalism and research assistant on several media research projects.

In my PhD project, I examine the role of media and media use for processes of social recognition. Thus, my research focuses on mediated recognition, as it is called in the emerging research field.

The transdisciplinary theoretical aspiration is to integrate theories of recognition from social and political theory with media and communication research, while the empirical approach is (online) fieldwork among a group of young people from so-called vulnerable residential areas or ghettos in Denmark.

My methodological approach draws primarily on (digital) ethnography, but also includes a range of other quantiative and qualitative methods from especially studies of media use.
