As a researcher at the Department of History I concentrate on two main subjects. First, the history of Swedish racism and scientific ideas of race and hereditary traits in the 19th and 20th centuries. My Ph.D.-thesis was a study on the often markedly racist policies that Swedish authorities and other socio-political agents developed against Swedish Citizens labelled as 'tattare' in this period ('tattare' was a vague and pejorative term that was often used to designate Swedish Traveller families.

Second, I study contentious political collective actions such as strikes, squatting and violent riots in the 20th and 19th centuries, and I am interested in all kinds of political and social conflicts taking place in the street and other spaces of contention outside Parliament and formal political parties.
