Historian, interested in 19th century political thought in and about the Scandinavian countries. Main fields of expertise includes Scandinavism, nation building processes and images and concepts about the press and the public sphere during the 1800s.
Currently, I am working on a thesis on political language in Scandinavian newspapers ca. 1810-1880, focussing on the highly contested concept of "public opinon".
