Om Gabriella Elgenius

Om Gabriella Elgenius

Gabriella Elgenius is Associate Professor in Sociology (Docent/Reader) at the Department of Sociology and Work Science at Gothenburg University and Associate Member at the Department of Sociology (University of Oxford) and the Centre for Migration and Diaspora (SOAS, University of London).

Gabriella received her doctorate at the LSE as a Marie Curie Fellow in 2005, and later held a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship (2007-2011) at Nuffield College and the Department of Sociology at the University of Oxford, where she has been departmental lecturer and researcher (2005-2014). Before she joined the faculty at University of Gothenburg in 2014 she has also worked as a researcher and lecturer at the LSE, Birkbeck College and School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) at the University of London.

Gabriella research focuses on political sociology, nationalism, migration and integration within the following fields: nationalism and the rise of ethnic nationalism and the Radical Right; diaspora mobilization, civil society and migrant organization in diverse areas; socio-political integration and the role of ethnic bonding and bridging social capital; migration, polarization and socio-economic integration on the labour-market. She uses comparative qualitative research designs as well as mixed methods (quantitative and qualitative) approaches in order to respond to the fields above.

Gabriella is a member of the Scientific Council of National Movements and Intermediary Structures in Europe (NISE) and the Association of the Study of Ethnicity and Nationalism (ASEN) at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

Gabriella teaches and supervises on her research areas nationalism, migration and integration, radical movements, diaspora and civil society, ethnic and gender stratification in organisations. She teaches courses in qualitative research methods and theory and Grounded Theory on Master and PhD levels.

Current Research Projects:

LOCALiTIES: The role of civil society in supporting employability in diverse areas in Sweden and the United Kingdom (Gabriella Elgenius, PI, funded by FORTE). The role of civil society is increasingly recognized in supporting residents of diverse neighbourhoods in accessing local labour markets. This project focuses on disadvantaged groups in the labour market, whose labour market participation falls considerably below native populations, and explores the role of civil society in supporting employability and access to employment. More about the project and team: https://localitiesproject.home.blog/project/

MIGRATION and POLARIZATION – patterns, mechanisms and experiences.
Part of Fortes research programme "The Challenges of Polarization on Swedish Labour Market" (Gabriella Elgenius is project leader for WP3; Tomas Berglund is programme leader, Funded by FORTE). This project addresses the integration of migrants and minorities into the Swedish labour market by assessing the extent, implications and experiences of polarisation across different dimensions; that is, between majority and minority populations (first and, so called, second generations); and the diversity within the migrant workforce and its distribution across the occupational structure.

FRAMING ETHNIC NATIONALISM: a study of the Sweden Democrats and the resurgence of reactionary nationalism in Sweden (with Jens Rydgren, Stockholm University, funded by the Swedish Research Council). This project explores the ethno-nationalist rhetoric as promoted by radical right-wing parties in Europe and its perceived threats against national identity translated into a nostalgia for the past.

POLISH MIGRATION in the UK: civil society, integration and BREXIT.
This project investigates the seemingly contradictory processes of social solidarity and division within diaspora civil societies, taking the Polish civil society abroad as the case in point. The aim is to contribute towards explanations as to how and why diaspora civil societies develop the way they do. Currently, this is of particular relevance in view of the polarization in the aftermath och the Polish election and Brexit. (Previous projects include Gabriella Elgenius PI, funded by the British Academy, John Fell and Kerstin Jacobson, PI, funded by Swedish Research Council).For more informamation about the project, click here.

Repatriating Cultural Heritage: museums, nation-building and rival narratives in the Nordic countries is a project part of a long-standing interest in the use of national symbols in nation-building. The symbolic regimes approach explores nation-building in stages, as layered and as a strategic undertaking. Research on national symbols have been funded by the European Commission, Marie Curie TMR, and recently the Centre for Concurrences: Colonial and Post-Colonial Studies LNU.)
