Student projects

We have lots of ideas for projects covering the full range of our topics. From purely analytical studies using existing data to fieldwork-based projects in Sweden or further afield. We are of course also open to helping you develop your own project ideas. See the box to the right for examples of previous student projects. Contact Sara Cousins or Regina Lindborg for an initial chat. They will then put you in contact with the right member of the group.
