About Catharina Wolcott


I worked and studied in the U.K. and in the U.S. for 15 years before returning to Sweden in 1997. Here I have taught English and Spanish at the high school level for 12 years and English at the University of Skövde for 8 years. I embarked on my PhD studies in January 2018.

Project Description

My project is connected to the subject of English but with a focus on learning. I aim to examine how fiction/literature is approached and for what purpose in English 5, English 6 and English 7 (first, second and third year of high school).
