I began my career at Umeå University where I recieved my doctoral degree in 1994. Since then I have had a research focus on early modern women´s and gender history, LGBT-history, and lately, the history of diplomacy. In 2009 I became professor of history at Umeå University. 2014 I moved to Lund University and became a senior lecturer (associate professor) at the Department of History.
My teaching has been closely related to my research. I have mainly taught early modern world history, LGBT-history and courses in methodology and theory.
As a director of studies I have been in charge of undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate programs.
Other tasks and qualifications
