I am Associate Professor, Docent, working at the department since 2000. I received my PhD at the Department of Cinema Studies at Stockholm University in 1996 for the dissertation “Bildets oppløsning; Filmens bevegelse i historisk og teoretisk perspektiv” (which translates as: “The Resolution of the Image; Film Movement from a historical and theoretical perspective”). I have been a visiting professor and visiting scholar at the Seijo University of Tokyo on five occasions between 2002 and 2011. In 2012, I was also a visiting professor at Kobe College in Japan. In the winter semester 2013-14, I was a senior fellow at the IKKM at Bauhaus-Universtät Weimar. From 2011 to 2014, I participated in the research project “The Archive in Motion”, funded by the Research Council of Norway, and between 2010 and 2015, the research program ”Time, Memory and Representation” at Södertörns University College, Sweden, funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond. I am co-directing the Stockholm University Graduate School of Aesthetic Sciences, and the co-editor of the book series "Film Theory in Media History” at Amsterdam University Press. Between 2011 and 2015, I was a Steering Committee member of the European Network for Cinema and Media Studies (NECS).
