I am a researcher in the History of Ideas and Sciences, Lund University. A historian by training, my research interests include colonial history since 1850, modern Japanese history, transnational and transimperial history, propaganda and popular imperialism. My current research project, funded by the Swedish Research Council, investigates the place of the Ainu people (indigenous to Hokkaido and the surrounding region) in Western racial taxonomies c. 1850-1940 and what this reveals about Western perceptions of "whiteness" at the time.
