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. The preliminary work on my thesis focuses on the relationships between things, technologies and the practice of medicine in Sweden and Denmark between approximately 1850 and 1900.

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.
