Present position

Researcher in Economic History

Research Interests

I am mainly interested in the rhetorical use of concepts in Swedish research policy, in particular how concepts have been used in struggles of control over research funding 1970-2000. In my dissertation (Eklund 2007) I focused on the concept of innovation system, in my current research project I study the concept of sectoral research.

Teaching experiences

I have taught on the courses Political Economy: States, Interests and Markets (7.5 p), STS: Economic Development in Time and Space (15 p) and ERASMUS: Sweden's Economic and Social Development in the 19th and 20th Centuries (7.5 p), Essay Writing (7.5 p), Research Paper in Economic History (15 p). I have also supervised two BA theses.

Research Projects

2009 – 2013, The Freedom and Utility of Research: Sectoral Research as a Contested Concept in Swedish Politics. (Jan Wallander and Tom Hedelius Foundation, Tore Browaldh Foundation).

2003, Centre for Research on Innovation and Industrial Dynamics, CIND. (Uppsala University, Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation, Vinnova).
