How to live with ambiguous pasts in changing industrial landscapes

My research interests are centered on industrial and post-industrial landscapes and their transformation, comprising both cultural and "natural" environments, in physical and imaginary sense. Such landscapes challenge the way we understand ecology, aesthetics, memory and heritage, and trigger concerns about power relations. 

I hold a PhD in the History of Technology from KTH Royal Institute of Technology and am Associate Professor (Swedish “Docent”) in Human Geography from Stockholm University. Previously I have had positions at KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Division of History of Science, Technology and Environment), Stockholm University (Department of Human Geography) and Södertörn University (Centre for Baltic and East European Studies, CBEES, and the Institute of Contemporary History, SHI). Since 2019 I am Professor of Technology and Social Change at Linköping University.
