The role of mothers in doing the political was the topic of my PhD at the Department of Sociology. Lund University. After a post at IMER (International Migration and Ethnic Relations) in Malmö University, I joined the Department of Gender Studies in 1998. I was appointed as Associated professor in sociology in 2004 and as full professor in Gender Studies in 2008.

Current research and teaching
Central to my research is to understand how gender and sexuality, class and”race”/ethnicity do the social and make the political at the cross-roads between personal lives: diverse forms of belonging and national and transnational institutions. Questions of colonial legacies, Global North /Global South relations (with special focus on Latin America) and racism as well as the diversified forms of resistance and organisation to old and new forms of power have stayed with me through all the work I have done
My teaching and research interests challenge and further develop each other and are inspired by Marxism and Postcolonial feminist theory; located within the field of social science, particularly within feminist sociology and anthropology and exploring topics such as nation and ethnic belonging, racism, social movements and globalising process. I am the Director of the PhD programme at the Department.
