Ann-Carita Evaldsson, PhD in Communication and Professor in Education, Uppsala University, Sweden.

Evaldsson's research comprises micro-ethnographic approaches to children's interaction with peers and adults in schools, after schools and homes. Her research focus particularly on the role of language, affect and morality in children's peer/sibling practices and in adult-child practices, and how identities (gender, class, ethnicity, disability, age) are accomplished in educational contexts. She has long-term experiences of carrying out ethnographic research based on video and audio recordings with a particular focus on the perspectives of the child and children’s ways of (inter) acting with others in multiethnic/multilingual low-income settings.
