I´m an associate Professor of History and a Senior Lecturer at Historical Studies. I usually lecture on Antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Early Modern era. I´m also international coordinator for Cultural Heritage Studies, and lecture on topics concerning critical cultural heritage. I have a Ph.d in History and I wrote my thesis on social networks, power structures and political culture among the nobility during the Middle Ages in Sweden. My current research is on performance, performativity and ritual in Scandinavia 1200-1400. I also research use of history, focused on emotional nationalism and Scandinavism as it relates to the construction of the Viking Age.
