Anders Aktor Liljedahl

PhD fellow

My research is situated at the intersection of the study of music videos, posthumanism, and racial political activism. My Ph.D-project looks into how and why more and more racialized mainstream popular music artists use "non-human" forms of expression as a kind of political activism in their music.

Primary fields of research

Music videos and audiovisuality

Posthumanism and afrofuturism

Conceptions of identity with a focus on racialization


I supervise in the following subjects

  • Music videos and audiovisual aesthetics
  • Issues of identity in Western popular music culture, especially regarding racialization
  • The intersection of music technology and questions of identity
