I am Associate Professor in Comparative Literature, Södertörn University. Ph D. in Comparative Literature 2003, Stockholm University with diss. Om kärlek. Litteratur, sexualitet och politik hos Ellen Key. I have  published a number of studies on 19:th Century literature, History of feminist thought and Gender Theory. Between 2008-2011 I was responsible for the research project Maskulinitetens estetik. Modernitetens medborgare i 1800-talets Östersjöregion (funded by the Foundation for Baltic and East European Studies).

Between 2010-2015 i was also part of the project "Time, Memory and Representation: A Multidisciplinary Program on Transformations in Historical Consciousness, (funded by Riksbankens jubileumsfond, program director Prof. Hans Ruin, Philosophy Södertörns högskola) with a project on how gender theory writes its own history, resulting in among other articles "Temporality and Metaphoricity in Contemporary Swedish Feminist Historiography". The aim was to critically investigate, from contemporary theories of temporality, the uses of history and notions of time as a part of constructivist argumentation in gender theorizing.
