About Åsa Mäkitalo

Åsa Mäkitalo is Professor in Education and co-director of LinCS. From 2010 she is also head of the University of Gothenburg LETStudio, a strategic initiative for interdisciplinary research on learning.

Mäkitalo specialises in research on institutional communication from a sociocultural and dialogical perspective. Her research concerns what it implies to appropriate, collectively maintain, and develop institutional forms of knowing. The analytical focus is on institutional categories which are fruitful to analyse in terms of their sociogenesis underpinning institutional forms of knowing, but also in terms of how they are used in organising and coordinating institutional practice as well as participants' sense-making and reasoning. Mäkitalo also takes an interest in the immanent pedagogy of institutions in the encounter with citizens; particularly the activities institutions arrange in order to intergrate or activate individuals or groups to participate a normatively preferred community.
