About Lina Palmqvist


My dissertation project goes under the working title The Landscape of Elderly Care – Senior Women in Focus, where I, through an ethnographic method, study the situation for elderly women engaged in elderly care, both as receivers and givers. One premise is that by taking old women's experiences of care situations and care relations into account, knowledge can be generated about the living space and agency in old age and the role that elderly care plays in this. I work with a broad definition of elderly care where publicly financed care forms, as well as care between relatives in (and outside) private households, are investigated.


I find myself in an intersection of research-feilds. I stand with one leg in feminist studies, especially when it's engaged with care, care-work, vulnerability, embodied experience and transnational intersectional anti racist theory – and the other leg in critical disability studies.
