Katarzyna Herd



In this project I intend to investigate every-day use of historical references in the context of a small number of Swedish football clubs.

Performing history during a match is a creative and unique phenomenon and makes the environment meaningful for individuals that find their place in an organization. It also creates the club’s image and validates its current structure. This research would show how integration through historical references works on individual level that connects to this specific institution.


I have taught various courses in Ethnology, Applied Cultural Analysis, Digital Cultures and Intermedial Studies. I have also supervised Bachelor theses.
