My name is Malin Espersson and I am a Ph.D in sociology. In 2010 I defended my doctoral thesis at the department of Sociology at Lund University. Since 2012 I work as a senior lecturer at the Department of Service Management and Service Studies.
In my research I am particularly interested in working life and more specifically in working conditions. Together with my colleagues Erika Andersson Cederholm and Mikael Bergmasth I am engaged in a three year long research project, financed by Forte, about sustainable work in the creative industries. In this project, we study the fast growing video games industry with focus on games developers. The aim of the study is to gain knowledge of the working conditions and working culture in the Swedish digital games industry.
The driving force of my research is to better understand challenges, possibilities and working conditions of the contemporary working life. I want to contribute with knowledge, which can used for utilization of existing resources in best possible way and to create good prerequisites for people, regardless of their background (such us gender, class or ethnicity) and position, in working life.
