My current research focuses on participatory arts and culture; cultural taste and communities; the uses of the arts; aesthetics, citizenship and politics. I am the director of Take Part – Research Network on Cultural Participation http://projekter.au.dk/en/take-part/; and co-director of a research program in Cultural Transformations http://cc.au.dk/en/research/research-programmes/cultural-transformations/.

I have recently been involved in and coordinated collective and participatory research projects about citizen participation in European cultural centres and about young people's experiences and expectations of cultural, social and political participation. My earlier research focused on the modern novel (especially the works of Goethe, Eco and Chatwin and the Bildungsroman) and on questions related to aesthetization, globalization and individualization.
