In my research I use different media, for example popular and daily press, newsreels and feature films, to explore the spirit of the times in Swedish 20th century society, specially highlighting negotiations of gender and class and thereby the historical conditions of the formation of democracy and egalitarianism. I am interested in the ways different media express experiences and identities, partake in the construction of events and historical participation, and are used for political formation in different eras.

Within the project In Light of the Dead. Constructions of National Identities at Public Funerals in the Shape of Media Events in Sweden, 1901–2003 I explore how democracy and monarchy have been mediated in the narrations of the Swedish welfare state.

I am an associate professor in history and a senior lecturer in media history and journalism. Since 1 January 2021 I am head of the Department of Media and Communication.
