Presentation
Camilla Rindstedt’s doctoral degree is a PhD in child studies from the Department of Child Studies (Tema barn), Linköping University. She is trained as a social anthropologist (with a B.A. in anthropology from Binghamton University, NY), and her dissertation is grounded in linguistic anthropology and language socialization theory (discussant: Prof. Shirley Brice Heath). The thesis is based on an extensive ethnographic fieldwork in rural areas in Latin America where she studied children’s play and work in an Ecuadorian indigenous community. She is presently employed as an Associate Professor (Docent) in child and youth studies at Stockholm University.

In the fall 2013 Rindstedt was a visiting academic at the Thomas Coram Research Unit, Institute of Education - University of London.

Research interests
Rindstedt’s most recent ethnographic fieldwork was carried out during sixteen months at a children’s oncology center in a children’s hospital in Sweden analyzing the interactions between professionals (doctors and nurses) and children (and families) and children’s place in those interactions.

In total Rindstedt has done ethnographic research with children in four different settings: (i) child care and health settings (cancer clinic) in Sweden, (ii) everyday family lives in Ecuador, (iii) preschool and school settings in Sweden, (iv) food practices in Tanzania. Various ethnographic methods and techniques have been used during fieldwork in these different sites: participant observations, video- and audio recordings, as well as informal interviews.
