Personal profile


I am professor of book and library history since October 2018. I have a PhD in history from Stockholm University (2000).

From 2007 to 2018 I worked at Kungliga Biblioteket/The National Library of Sweden, doing research and working with with infrastructural matters. Among my projects there I am especially proud of the digitization of the master drawings and engravings to Erik Dahlbergh's Suecia antiqua et hodierna, a topographical work from the seventeenth century..

In 2016–2020 I headed the research project "TTT: Medieval texts in context – then an now". The project involved some 250 old Swedish manuscripts and was a collaboration between The National Library of Sweden, Uppsala University Library and Centre for Medieval Studies at Stockholm University. The catalogue and digitized manuscripts were made available through the data base

I am also interested in freedom of the press in the eighteenth century. At present I am working on a study on the immediate results of the Swedish freedom of the press ordinance from 1766, the world’s first government-sponsored declaration of freedom of the press. (The 1766 Ordinance can be read in English translation here.)
