Biosketch: Dr. Eva Hjörne

Eva Hjörne completed her PhD in Education at University of Gothenburg, Sweden, in 2004. Her main interests are in the analysis of institutional discourse, processes of marginalization and mediated action with special focus on categorizing and identity formation of pupils in school. Her current research project includes analysis of meetings between experts in school (so called pupil welfare team meetings) when negotiating and identifying who is in need of special support and, what pedagogical implications this will have when pupils, for instance, are placed into special teaching groups.

Current research activities

Project, 2007-1010: Boys with 'problematic' school behaviours - A study of masculinity, exclusion and socialisation in special teaching group. Funded by Swedish Research Council. Together with professor Ann-Carita Evaldsson, Uppsala University.
