About Erik Löfmarck

I am an associate professor in sociology and head of Örebro University School of Business. My research is broadly concerned with the social aspects of risk, knowledge and the environment. My PhD-thesis Den hand som föder dig: en studie av risk, mat och moderskap i Sverige och Polen (Uppsala University, 2014) is a study of how mothers of young children in Stockholm and Warsaw perceive and manage risk concerning food. As postdoctoral fellow I studied the role of knowledge within environmental governance, particularly in the workings of IPBES and IPCC. I have also looked at uncertainty as a problem of governance within the Swedish forest sector. Currently I am exploring the role and status of traditional knowledge. I am also engaged in a project at SLU on supplementary feeding practices in Swedish game management, as such practices carry with them potential risks for both wildlife, forestry and humans. 

As a teacher my main interest is in qualitative methods and the art of problematizing. In my spare time I do a bit of stand up comedy and music.
