Since autumn 2019 I’m a doctoral student in media history. In my doctoral dissertation I examine the spiritist movement in Sweden between 1870 and 1930, from critical media- and cultural historical perspectives.

My approach is twofold, which means that I, on the one hand, investigate the entangled media history of spiritist actors, spiritist networks and spiritist circulations. On the other hand, I look into media practices and mediations and how these impacted everyday lives, views on reality and created a mediatised spiritist world, in which the spiritists lived with and through their media.

My source material consists of printed material as well as personal documents, such as correspondence or seance protocols.

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