Short presentation

Since December 2016, I'm working as professor of education at Örebro university.

I'm senior lecturer in history of education, and associate professor (docent) in history. The social, economic and cultural history of education is my main research interest. This includes the history of primary schooling (school buildings, teachers, ambulatory schools etc.) and early years education (infant schools, child cribs, kindergartens).
