I am a PhD-student in media history since September 2020. My main research interestsare media, politics, and science in Sweden in the 20th century. In my dissertation project I study the history of opinion polling in Sweden from its beginnings in the early 1940’s. By employing perspectives from media history and the history of knowledge I want to examine opinion polling as a new media technology. What was it used for? How did it relate to other media? What conditions did it create for knowing and mediating publics?

I have a Master’s degree in History of Science and Ideas from Uppsala university, and I have previously worked as a museum educator.
