Research Interests

Yvonne is a PhD in journalism. Her thesis (2009) analyzed the representation of civil disobedience in Swedish daily newspapers from 1995 to 2004 (Mellan lag och moral. Civil olydnad och militanta veganer i fyra svenska dagstidningar åren omkring millennieskiftet). Ethics and the construction of morality is a research interest that also has informed more recent studies about Hitler and Nazism in Swedish journalism (2012) and blogs about life with terminal illness, such as cancer (2012). Media and health is an additional research interest and she has conducted one study of fitness blogs, gender and emotions (published in Hirdman & Kleberg 2015). Media, ethics, health and existential questions converge in her current project; (B)logging through an existential crisis, where the existential dimensions of self logging and self tracking are analyzed and discussed.
