My research focuses on questions of urban life, visual media, gender, sexuality, culture, life style, ethics, immigration.
Ideas of hierarchy and dichotomy, of oppression and exclusion have become quasi-automatic and almost compulsory in many studies of these fields, for instance in feminism, migration studies and queer studies. In my own work, I have made a critique of these tendencies. I have also presented a number of alternative or supplementary theoretical and methodological approaches, often taking my inspiration in works from continental European phenomenology, existential analysis and aesthetics. For instance, concepts of gender game, of sexual forms of existence, of reasonable worry may be more adequate than those of gender “struggle”, discursively produced “identities” and majority populations’ “racism”.
