I received my PhD in History of Science and Ideas from Uppsala University in 2011. While my PhD thesis examined the politics and philosophies of education in the 16th century, I am currently focusing on the cultural processes of knowledge production in relation to gender and sexuality in the early 20th century. In the spring of 2014 I began a three-year postdoctoral fellowship, shared between the Centre for Gender Research, Uppsala University, and the University of Manchester, UK. My project, funded by the Swedish Research Council, investigates how cultural representations and performances of female masculinities in the interwar period shaped, disturbed or in other ways affected ongoing negotiations of gender and sexuality. Drawing on queer theory, I will explore different configurations of female masculinity, whether as an object of desire, a source of cultural anxiety, a political concern, a commercial opportunity or as a way of artistic and individual exploration of modern life.  Focusing on an interwar Swedish context, these and other unruly refractions of female masculinities will be addressed across different sites of inquiry, such as fashion, film, literature, sports and medicine.
