Short presentation

My doctoral project explores teaching and learning about food and health in Home- and consumer studies (HCS). With a pragmatist approach and through the use of qualitative research methods such as observations and stimulated recall-interviews, I study meaning making processes in the HCS-classroom.

Main supervisor: Prof. Ylva Mattsson Sydner
