Guest Researchers

An important part of our dynamic research environment are the many visiting researchers who stay for shorter or longer periods of time. These guests are often invited by a certain research group at the Centre to build up networks, exchange knowledge, write applications or organise conferences and workshops. Many of the international researchers return several times to continue their collaborations within the groups and contribute to a creative and inspiring research environment.

Emilie Moberg

Senior lecturer, Department of Child and Youth Studies, Stockholm University

Emilie Moberg holds a PhD in Early Childhood Education from Stockholm University (2017) and her current research is focused on children's bodily, affective and knowledge-producing encounters with more-than-human species in early childhood education settings. More specifically, she would like to explore how these encounters become conditioned by science subject knowledge, so called facts, on biodiversity and morphology, which are permeated by norms on gender, human exceptionalism and ideals on why children need to learn how to care for other species.
