I am currently positioned as Senior Lecturer at School of Arts and Communication at Malmö University in Sweden. I hold a PhD and is now Assistant Professor in Media- and communication studies and Visual Communication, with a particular research focus on new media technology, media activism and social change. During the spring of 2015 I am writing a book on media technology and political revolutions during the 20th century. Currently I am working with a more dark side of media activism, namely the strategic use of social media by the Islamic State. A more detailed description of this as well as other ongoing work is presented under Research from the main page.
My teaching areas evolves around media activism, strategy, media history, visual communication, journalism, new media and communication for development. Within these areas there are a number of more specific subjects and courses that I teach more extensively on, for example radio- and television history, narrative theory, media discourse, new media and political activism, cultural theory and globalization.
