Since autumn 2019 I’m a doctoral student in media history. In my doctoral dissertation I examine the spiritualistic movement in Sweden between 1880 and 1930, from a theoretical media- and communication perspective, in order to understand the movement’s relation to the time's ideals, religion, art and women’s entrance into society.

My approach is twofold, which means that I, on the one hand, investigate the spiritualistic (media)networks and on the other hand the mediation in itself, as well as its existential dimensions. My base is a rich source material, consisting of e.g. correspondence, newspapers, spiritist magazines and books, seance protocols, spiritistic art and spirit photography.

Before I came to Lund’s University I was a communication designer and also completed a training as costume designer and make-up artist. As part of my interest for the 19th century’s cultural history I sew historical dresses and have been involved in enlivening history at Kulturen's Christmas fair.


Other tasks and qualifications

Since 2014 I have been involved in the SI-activities at Lund’s University, as SI-leader, SI-supervisor and in connection to a research project.
