Wahlberg's fields of interests include film and philosophy; film archives and cultures of commemoration; documentary film and media; experimental cinema and film in contemporary art. Wahlberg is currently working on a book on solidarity film and radical programming, in relation to her archive project on public television and documentary agency in Swedish broadcasting culture. Inspired by more general problems of film, historiography and memory work, she is also aiming at a theoretical follow-up of her 2008 book Documentary Time, now with special attention to sound, audiovisuality, and the impact of silence and speaking bodies for the documentary enactment of testimonies and oral history in moving images.
