Head of department and professor of sociology.

Kristoffer Chelsom Vogt does research at the intersection between life course research and research concerning education, work, class, practical knowledge, youth transitions, family and gender. He has published on topics ranging from vocational education, early school leaving, age norms, transitions from school to work, the 'gap year', post-industrial theory, historical changes within class analysis, gender segregated labour markets, intergenerational relations, recent changes in children and young people's everyday lives, and depictions of boys as losers. In 2019 he served as a member of a Goverment commision (appointed by the Ministry of Children and Equality) on gender equality challenges among children and young people. He is a member of the editorial board for the Nordic Journal of Youth Research (Nordisk tidsskrift for ungdomsforskning), The Norwegian Journal of Gender Studies (Tidskrift for kjønnsforskning) and is European regional editor for Families, Relationships and Society.
