Markus Holdo: Guest postdoc from Uppsala University
The IUR is thrilled to welcome Markus Holdo from Uppsala University who will be a guest postdoc at Malmö during the autumn semester.
Holdo’s research has explored problems of marginalization in public discourse through case studies in various contexts, including local politics in Argentina, environmental activism, and debates about riots in Sweden.
While at Malmö University, he will be starting on a new project, hosted by the Institute for Housing and Urban Research at Uppsala University, about problems of trust and collective action in marginalized residential areas in Swedish cities. He will also be working on a manuscript for a book with the tentative title The Quiet Politics of Grassroots Democracy.
