Academic interests

My academic interests are oriented towards youth- life, youth- culture,  identity processes and intercultural perspectives. In my  postdoctor project "Modernization as lived experience" we explore identity constructions of young men and women in two contrasting societies, China and Norway, through a three-generational comparison. In my former PhD project I did study what kind of learning- and identity processes are involved in international youth exchanges for young people. In another project, Space2Cre8, led by Glynda Hull at the Berkeley University, US, we did investigates the sociocultural, developmental, and educational implications of engaging youth around the world in the explosive phenomenon of Internet-enabled social network. As a member in the European university consortium MA EYS I have been involved in working out a Master in European Youth Studies (MA EYS) at a European level. MA EYS is a 120 ECTS transnational and intercultural master's degree in the interdisciplinary field of European youth studies.
