Klas-Göran Karlsson, b. 1955, Professor of History. Within the field of contemporary international history, my research interests are three-fold. The first is directed towards modern East European history, with an emphasis on Russia and the Caucasian area. In particular, I have addressed problems related to education, history of historiography, migration processes and ethnic conflict. I have also taken an interest in genocide and terror history, which includes a dual approach on historical, unique and general developments of genocidal societies, and on the handling of genocide and terror histories by posterity. I have written books about the Soviet Communist regime's crimes, the Armenian genocide and the Holocaust. My third research interest concerns interpretations, representations and uses of history in a wide European perspective. In my mind, the main task of historians is to provide history with meaning, and society with an orientation in time.
