Associate Professor Ann-Carita Evaldsson

Associate Professor Ann-Carita Evaldsson is an expert in examining children’s identity work in their social and cultural context (including in play/games, multilingualism, bulling, disputes, gossip, storytelling, -moral account-work) and language socialisation in multi-ethnic peer groups. Ann-Carita’s methodological interests include studies of talk-and bodies-in-interaction, and everyday language practices. She combines a language socialisation approach, ethnography with conversation analysis and ethnomethodology. Ann-Carita’s background in technology research and leadership will contribute important expertise to the Centre’s Healthy and Connected programs.
