Victoria de Leon Born is also employed as a PhD researcher with the project and will research 'Conflicting Ideals in Nordic Motherhood, An Enquiry into Narratives of Intensive Mothering and Child Autonomy'. Victoria completed her Masters Thesis at the Department of Education at the University of Oslo where she explored how the transition to adulthood is experienced in late modern culture.
