About Lotte Schack

Lotte Schack has been a PhD student in sociology since August 2020. She holds a B.Sc and an M.Sc in Social Anthropology from the University of Copenhagen. In her master thesis "Our solidarity against your bureaucracy", she examined the role of care and knowledge practices in activist responses to state-sanctioned precarity in Berlin in the wake of neoliberal labour market reforms.

Lotte's PhD research aims to understand how the Swedish climate movement arrives at specific strategies and visions for a fossil free future through ethnographic fieldwork with Swedish climate activists.

The research is part of the project 'The necessary and the possible: How social movements articulate, convey and negotiate visions of a fossil free and just future' (Formas 2019-01961) together with Joost de Moor (Sciences Po), Katrin Uba (Uppsala University), Magnus Wennerhag (Södertörns Högskola) and Mattias Wahlström (GU).

Lotte's research interests include social movements, precarity, the climate crisis, feminist and Marxist theory, and ethnographic methods.

Lotte teaches on the introductory course in sociology, philosophy of science in the teacher's programme and in methods courses on work science. She also supervises bachelor theses.
