Short presentation

I am currently writing a monograph with the preliminary title Court and Town: Political sociability in Stockholm, ca. 1770-1870. My studies are at the intersection of political, social and cultural history. I have published books and articles about the Swedish court at the late 18th and early 19th centuries, the everyday life of the elites, diplomacy and consumption. Since 2016 I am editor-in-chief for Sjuttonhundratal: Nordic Journal for Eighteenth Century Studies.
