Historical and Contemporary Studies

F834

I am a historian and have been involved in various research- and education projects at Södertörns University since 2000. In the main my research concern modern political history analyzed through a gender perspective. My research concerns the following fields:

Labour-market politics.The Swedish union movement, both blue-collar and white-collar organisations. The local state. Foremost the local governments in their roles as employers and their relations to different groups of employees in the public sector.Gender equality politics.Oral history, especially elite oral history

At present I participate in two research projects:

The project Mourning Becomes Electra concerns gender equality politics in a Baltic Sea perspective. The project embraces gender equality politics in Sweden, Northwest Russia, Lithuania and The Nordic Council.

The project The Idea of the Local Government as an Ideal Employer analyzes the positions and standpoints of local public employers from 1862 until today.
