I am a Senior Lecturer in human rights and Phil Dr in history.

My research is on the cultural history of war and concerns narratives, discourses and memories of war, especially the First World War. I am interested in media, emotional and rights perspectives on conflicts and how they shape different identities. An additional interest is humanitarian history, particularly views on children and children’s rights.

I am currently working on two projects. The first project is within the field of humanitarian history/human rights history and focuses on Swedish Save the Children in the interwar years. The second project examines discourses of mental illness among children in social care in Sweden ca. 1900–2017.
