Research areas

My name is Jannick Schou and I am a PhD Fellow at the Department of Business IT. My research focuses on questions of public sector digitalization, politics and citizenship.

My current focus is on how existing forms of (active) citizenship and governance are both extended and reworked through digitalization in the Danish welfare state. Theoretically, my work foregrounds questions of hegemony, power and discursivity as central to understanding the cultural political economy of contemporary states. I work with a combination of critical policy analysis and qualitative interviews. 

I will gladly supervise both master's thesis and bachelor's projects if they fall broadly under my research interests. If you are a student, feel free to contact me for an informal dialogue. 


Out now!

I have a new monograph out now (in English, with Morten Hjelholt). It investigates digitalization, citizenship and public sector transformations from a cultural political economic perspective, and is published by Palgrave Macmillan. Read more about 'Digitalization and Public Sector Transformations' here.

I have a Danish monograph out now (with Morten Hjelholt). It looks into the the digital citizen as a new political figure, and is published by Hans Reitzels Forlag. Read more about "Den digitale borger" here.
