I am a retired associate professor of history, but still active as a scholar and affiliated to the Dept. of History at LU. In my PhD thesis I investigated power relations in the rental market in late 19th and early 20th century Malmö. Since then I have been linked to the Dept. of History in various shapes and to different extent – as a teacher, an assistant professor, a researcher and a director at the Center for Labor History in Landskrona. As a teacher I have taught in different fields, such as social-, labor-, urban- and environmental history. In 2009-2013 I was also employed in a research project financed by the Swedish Research Council on xenophobia and labor movement. In 2014 I was a visiting lecturer at the Dept. of Scandinavian Studies, University of Washington. My current research deals with Swedish immigrants in the early 1900s, who were deported back to Sweden by the US authorities.
