I teach at bachelor, master- and PhD levels and work with programs, courses and guest lecturers. At the moment I work with courses about ‘The history of agriculture and the countryside’ (primarily students at the rural development programme), ‘Historical landscapes’ (landscape architect programme) and ‘Twentieth century agricultural economy and politics’ (agronomy students in economy and rural development, respectively, and master students from Sweden and abroad). I am also giving a PhD course in cross-disciplinary perspectives.
My current research follows two main paths, on the one hand dairy cattle, dairy farming and the dairy sector in the 20th c. On the other hand I am engaged in agricultural and rural politics and changes in methods of production during the 20th century. Focus is primarily on Sweden, although with an approach that connects to international conditions and how Swedish agrarian history can be understood in comparison with other countries. I am very pleased to have the ability to collaborate with colleagues in Spain, France and England, among others.
In agronomist with wide fields of interests. For many years I have worked with practical farming and in various parts of the Swedish agricultural sector. In 2005 I got a PhD degree (dairy farming from late 19th to early 20th c) at SLU, and since 2010 I am docent in Economic History (Stockholm University). Since 2012 I have the position as associate professor in Agrarian History at SLU.
I supervise essays and theses at various levels, from candidate to PhD.
