Biography

Ella Johansson is chair professor in European Ethnology at Uppsala University since 2011. Other positions include the Dag Hammarskjöld guest professorship at Humboldt University, Berlin 2002-2005 and a fellowship at the Swedish College of Advanced Studies in Uppsala 2001.

In her PhD from Lund University “Free Sons of the Forest -- Masculinity and Modernity in Swedish Logging” (in Swedish) and as leader of an extensive cross disciplinary project “Flexibility as Tradition. Subsistence and Culture in Northern Sweden” she studied social change and relations to modernity in the North during the 19th and early 20th centuries. A second main area of her research is Swedish national identity in relation to modern immigration. She also takes interest in heritage, landscape and gender issues. Current research includes studies of children’s play in suburban Stockholm, swimming and national identity and a early modern ritual of godmothers during the day of baptism.
