Personlig profil

Forskningsintressen

Matilda Hellman, DSocSci, is a sociologist with a background in literature, journalism and social sciences. She has been internationally recognized and awarded for her work concerning sociocultural understandings and articulations of health.
Her research has dealt with addiction, mental health, lifestyles and social marginalization. It has furthered knowledge on the ways in which governance practice and institutions embed and produce views on questions such as drug use, alcohol policy, gambling, brain-based addiction and how it effects individuals, groups and societies. A central conceptual framework has been the welfare state in its many historical shapes and models.
