About fellow

Marit Haldar is a professor of sociology. Important themes in her research are childhood, gender, family, social inequality, vulnerable subjects in the welfare state and health care system. Her studies of norms and cultural perceptions of the "ordinary" and "normal" versus the "different" or "deviant" have contributed to the research and understanding of what creates social inequality. Haldar is head of the interdisciplinary research group Welfare Access Through Technology (WATT), and is a member of the Interdisciplinary Center for Kindergarten Research (REACH). Haldar is engaged in methodology and analytical strategies, and has developed new methodology with reviews in international methodology (see Silverman, D. 2011, "Interpreting qualitative data", 4th ed. London: Sage).
