    I am the leader of the national research school CuEEd-LL - Culturally Empowering Education through Language and Literature, which includes five universities. In my research, I have combined modern languages, specifically French, with literary studies. In this intersection, I have studied how French-language literature circulates in the world. A particular focus has been on sub-Saharan literature and the spread and reception of French-language comics.

    I sit on the board of the consortium GRADE, which is a multidisciplinary forum, has a research focus on digitization and learning, and runs three national research schools in the area. I am currently participating in the project Ethics & Values ​​in Data-Driven Educational Practices and co-editor of the forthcoming anthology Framing Futures (Springer 2024). I sing in the band the Expats whenever possible.

    Maria Bäcke currently holds positions as programme director for the master's programme LeaDS, as leader for the research environment CCD (www.ju.se/ccd) and as co-supervisor for Asia Della Rossa. Her PhD thesis (Power Games: Rules and Roles in Second Life, 2011), written in the field of TechnoScience, focuses on power, hierarchies, and roles in online role-play groups. Her current research studies structures of ownership, power, authority, and subversion as well as digitalisation in school and in fiction as well as non-fiction, merging the fields of digitalisation, education, and cultural studies. She studies the processes behind the selection of EdTech for students. A related area of interest is students' use of the same tools in schools, at leisure centres, and in municipal adult education, drawing on issues of power and subversion in "Big Data," i.e. data ownership and data mining/harvesting.

    Christina Hedman holds a position as full Professor of Swedish as a second language at the Department of Teaching and Learning, Stockholm University, Sweden. Drawing from critical sociolinguistics, her research centers on multilingual language learning from educational and critical perspectives.

    A research focus has been on the language, literacy and literary educational provisions aimed at students with migration backgrounds in Sweden, such as Swedish as a Second Language, Language Introduction, and Mother Tongue Instruction. Recent research projects include, amidst other, a collaborative project on Critical Multilingual Language Awareness among migrant adolescents (SU–Cambridge Collaborative Research Grants Scheme); Visual Resources in Language Teaching for Adults (the Swedish Institute for Educational Research); Children with Migration Background in Schools for Students with Intellectual Disability: A New Research Field (the Swedish Research Council), and Reinterrogating Language Education in Adulthood through the Lens of Critical Sociolinguistics and Disability Studies (the Swedish Research Council). In the latter projects, critical sociolinguistics and language educational perspectives intersect with critical disability studies. This research is also informed by Linguistic Ethnography. In CUEEd-LL, Christina co-supervises one of the PhD students.

    My main research interests are in the field of Language Teaching and Learning with a particular focus on literacy, writing and participation. Often my research is ethnographically inspired, particularly using theoretical perspectives where languaging is studied as social and cultural practices and where opportunities for learning are related to questions of power.

    My research interests are literature didactics, cultural studies, and (auto)ethnography. I have in various projects investigated ideas about the values of literature in school, libraries, and a number of other arenas such as book clubs, literature festivals, and in fiction itself. I currently work with a larger project about passionate reading, and with a project funded by the Swedish Research Council called The Fiction of numbers. How reading is made a public and didactic problem (2022–2024). During many years I was the director of the post graduate school in Languages and Literature in Education (SMDI/SLDI). I have been the director of the national phd-school Language and Literature Didactics in the Media Landscape, a visiting professor at Karlstad university, and was in 2022 appointed by the Swedish government to become a member of the Reading Council.

    Broadly, his research interests include multilingualism in society, language policy and language ideologies. Examples of recent knowledge interests are Sweden’s national minority languages, mother tongue instruction and assimilatory language policies historically directed against the Meänkieli speaking linguistic minority in the Swedish far-north. Another salient research interest is science per se. Salö has conducted research on the sociolinguistics, sociology and history of science. His recent work has dealt with science–society interaction, with an eye toward foregrounding the societal value and knowledge effects of the human sciences in Sweden. Salö is affiliated with research environments at Uppsala University and KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Since 2020, he is Stockholm University’s representative in the think tank Humtank.
