I have been a doctoral student in history since the autumn of 2021. In my thesis, I examine how experiences and expectations of consensus (samförstånd) in the Swedish society during the 20th century have contributed to shaping a great narrative about a Swedish spirit of consensus (samförståndsanda). My purpose is to explore how the concept of consensus during the 20th century has been formulated and temporalized - placed in the history, in the present and in the future - in the Swedish publicity in order to try to interpret why the spirit of consensus has ingested its long and present position in the Swedish history and cultural self-image during the 20th century.

My historical interest is in a broad sense oriented towards the emergence of modern society with a special interest in notions of future in historical time, labor market history and environmental history.
