In my PhD research, I analyse e-lending models for e-books and digital audiobooks at public libraries in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden within the context of cultural policy. My research interests include digital books, library studies, cultural policy research and sociology of literature.
I hold a B.A. in Swedish Philology and a M.A. in Scandinavian Studies from Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland, with a focus on Swedish modern literature and narratology. I have also studied at universities in Stockholm, Helsinki and Gothenburg, as an exchange student as well as a part-time student.
Fields of study
