The local industry that is studied is the fur industry in Tranås. With a focus on individual experiences of industrial decline it becomes possible to draw parallels to a broader narrative of deindustrialization in Sweden. To reach these aims, I study how previous workers within the fur industry remember and recount about the work itself, the industrial decline, and the preservation of the fur industry as a heritage in Tranås.
My other research
I am contributing to a project in local history called “Risinge – mitt i världen” (eng: “Risinge – in the middle of the world”). My role in the project is to write an overview of literature and previous research. The project is financed by Olof Skoglund’s foundation and is led by Hans Nilsson.
Previously I have studied subjects such as cultural studies, sustainable development, fashion studies and history. I have a Bachelor’s degree in fashion studies, and a master’s degree in economic history.
