Research Grants, Awards and Projects

My research, teaching (PhDs, postdocs, MA students) and collaborative activities (networks, workshops, collaboration with general society, and journals), and that of my group, The Posthumanities Hub, depend since 2008 heavily on external funding and funding received after systematic peer review.

In international competition, I have attracted funding (about 60 m SEK) from prime research funding bodies such as Swedish Research Council (VR), Swedish Research Council FORMAS, European Research Council (ERC), Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences (RJ), Royal Swedish Academy (Vitterhetsakademin), the Nordic research council for Humanities and Social Sciences (NOS), the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), and the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research (MISTRA).
