I am senior lecturer in book history, and I have been working with teaching, supervision and course development in book history since 2002. I also worked as a literary critic for newspapers for twenty years. I live in Malmö.

My research focuses on questions on how meaning is produced in the interaction between humans and the material world within the area of graphical communication.


About the research

My research interests are focused on questions about the production of meaning in the interplay between the individual and the graphic techniques and documents through which she communicates, both in the past and in our own times. The history of printing in Sweden also interests me, both in regard to the dissemination and function of the technology itself, and to the books and other printed matter that were produced.

Currently, I’m running an international project on books and politics, and I’m about to launch a project on the early development of print culture in southern Sweden. Together with my colleague Gunilla Törnvall, I start working on an “introduction to book history”-book, and, together with colleagues at the University Library in Lund, I work on a book about ephemera.
