Short presentation

This paragraph is not available in English, therefore the Swedish version is shown.

My research circulates around the creation of Modern Society, in Sweden, and on a global scale. I have dealt with aspects of industrialisation, technological change, and work. I have recently attached questions about the Enlightenment and urbanisation. A central feature in all this is the question of a Swedish Enlightenment existed or not. A central theme in many of these studies is the Swedish and European iron industry, with a gradual opening towards a wider perspective in recent years.
