I am a PhD Research Fellow in Social Studies Didactics where I research children´s rights and education. I specifically focus on children´s right to human rights education in Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC). In the Norwegian educational context, human rights education is specifically assigned to the subject of social studies.
I have a background in education and sociology of children and childhood, I have worked as a pedagogoical leader in an ECEC Centre. I have a bachelor degree as an Early Childhood Education teacher from Queen Mauds University College and a masters degree in Childhood Studies from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), both in Norway.
In my PhD studies I combine my interests of children´s rights and education. I have an interest in education across educational levels, but my project focus on the first step into education in Norway - the ECEC. My PhD project, working title "Human rights education in early childhood education and care - a critical analysis of NGO produced learning materials" focuses on the ideological and formal curricula for human rights education for children in ECEC. I utilise critical discourse analysis and the research focus on the human rights education appearing from the learning materials available for the Norwegian ECEC teacher. I engage deeply with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child as well as Norway´s National Curricula for the ECEC. My research combine legal, educational and social studies perspectives.
My main research interests are human rights, children´s rights, democracy, diversity, and children´s agency and participatory rights.
Along side my PhD studies, I continue to develop my research and academic skills by being involved in conference managment and participation. My academic training also include reviewing fellow PhD-colleagues´ work and teaching and grading at the University of Agder.
