Kristina Göransson

Senior Lecturer

PhD in social anthropology


I hold a PhD in Social Anthropology from Lund University. My doctoral dissertation (2006) examined the renegotiation of intergenerational obligations and expectations in contemporary Singapore against the background of the rapid economic development and social change the country has undergone since the 1960s. The study was based on a long-term ethnographic fieldwork in Singapore conducted between 2002 and 2004. In 2007 I was a visiting fellow at Ecole des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (EHESS) in Paris. I began my work at the School of Social Work in 2008 and participates in the research network Child and Family Welfare Research. My research interests primarily concern intergenerational relations and family, social change, modernity, Singapore/Southeast Asia, gender, ethnographic methods.
