born 1953, Professor. In 1987 I defended my dissertation on the crafts in the town of Malmlö during the last century of guilds regulations (Lärling - gesäll - mästare. Hantverk och hantverkare i Malmö 1750-1847).

I have a long teaching experience on all levels, from first year students to graduate education, in particular focusing on courses on theory, methods and historiography. I have served as Dean of Graduate studies in the Department of History, and since 2010 I am chairman of the department.

My research is focused on the social transformations of Swedish urban society in the 18th and 19th century. I have a special interest in the urban crafts but also in radical movements of the 19th century and the early labour movement. I am interested in the intersections of social and cultural history.
