Historical and Contemporary Studies

I am a PhD student in the history of ideas, and my primary research interests lie within the area of science, technology and medicine. My thesis focuses on the relationships between devices, knowledge and the practice of medicine in Sweden and Denmark,1850 - 1900. My research has engaged with devices and their relationships with diagnosis, wound care and orthopaedics.

I have experience teaching at the B.A. level in the history of ideas as well as in teacher education programmes for primary school, early childhood education and extended school (fritidshem). This includes supervision of first cycle independent theses. I have additionally taught and developed the course The History of Science from a Global Perspective in the history of ideas, and taught Scientific Perspectives, Primary School, Years 4-6.

I have a B.A. in history from the University of Alberta in Canada, where I also studied English literature, and a M.A. in the history of ideas from Södertörn University. My Master’s thesis examined professional discussions about the development of vivisection as a means of physiological research in Britain in the late 19th century.
