Short description: 
My name Is Bo, I am an associate professor at Aalborg University, Denmark, in the Department of Communication and Psychology. I have a strong interest in the Capability Approach of Amartya Sen and Martha Nussbaum, and the applications of it in different fields. Furthermore, I try to combine it with the social psychological framework and method of positioning theory - a discursive psychological theory combining a microsociological focus (influenced by Erwin Goffman and Harold Garfinkel) on people's concrete interactions with an acute sense of the conceptual discriminations drawn upon in these interactions.
