I am a Professor of Sociology at the University of Iceland.

My main paradigms of sociological inquiry are within sociology of knowledge, sociology of culture, and performance studies.

In my research I am especially interested in social atmosphere. I for instance focus on: sports; excellence, success and achievement; culture and traditions; national identity; small groups and teamwork; symbolic communication; elite sports and youth sports; positive development through sport; talent development in sport; youth and adolescents; substance use; popular culture; and visual sociology.

This page provides information of my work. Here you can download my research articles, watch selected presentations and find an overview of my previous and current projects as well as media coverage related to my work. Here are also photo examples of my visual sociology collection.
