Centre for Theology and Religious Studies

The Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology | Lund University


I have an MA in Education (Religion and English) from Dalarna University College (2011) and an MA in Church History from Uppsala University (2012). Since 2012 I am a doctoral student in church history.

In my academic studies one of my main interests has been gender studies. This is also reflected in my dissertation project, which investigates ideals of masculinity within the Swedish laity organisation Kyrkobröderna, Svenska kyrkans lekmannaförbund during 1918-1978.

My head supervisor is Professor Anders Jarlert and my assistant supervisor is Professor Urban Claesson.

Apart from my dissertation project I am also interested in the connection between religion and sport as well as the relation between the church and the spiritualist movement during the first half of the twentieth century.
