Amanda Klysing

"I conducted my Bachelor’s and Master’s studies in psychology at Lund University. Following the completion of the Master’s program I worked as a research assistant for a research project on gender-fair language where I also got the idea for my PhD project. My thesis will deal with the intersections of sexual orientation and gender in recruitment; investigating how language is used to construct a protypical employee and how this affects those who do not match said prototype."
