Personlig profil


My research interests include material culture, consumption, lifestyle, work and leisure, family and gender history as well as microhistory, cultural history and history of elites in eighteenth and nineteenth-century Sweden, Finland and Europe.

I have published on material culture, consuming practices, credit and debt, private economy of elite families, handicrafts and shopping, life at country house and in town, food culture and work of servants. My current research topics include research on the cultural history of work, material culture, everyday life, family history and country houses and manorial society in eighteenth-century Sweden.

2019–2021 I lead together with Professor Charlotta Wolff (University of Turku) the project Vägen över havet –Kulturell växelverkan mellan universitetsstäderna Åbo och Uppsala 1640–1828.

My publications include Early Professional Women in Northern Europe, c. 1650–1850 (2017, edited with Marjatta Rahikainen and Kirsi Vainio-Korhonen), A Taste for Luxury in Early Modern Europe: Display, Acquisition and Boundaries (2017, edited with Jon Stobart), ‘Embroidering women & turning men: Handiwork, gender and emotions in Sweden and Finland, c. 1720–1820’ in Scandinavian Journal of History 41:3 (2016), the special issue on eighteenth-century cultural history in Historisk Tidskrif för Finland 100:4 (2015, edited with Charlotta Wolff) and a major study on the consumption and lifestyle of Swedish aristocracy in the eighteenth century Ett ståndsmässigt liv. Släkten von Fersens livstil på 1700-tal (2012), as well as a number of other articles, co-edited volumes and monographs.

I am editor for Historiallinen Aikakauskirja, editor for the open access yearbook 1700-tal – Nordic Yearbook for Eighteenth-Century Studies, member of the board for open access history journal Historisk Tidskrift för Finland, member of the board for open access journal Apparence(s), and member of the editorial board for the series Crossing Boundaries: Turku Medieval and Early Modern Studies at Amsterdam University Press.

From August 2018 to March 2021 I held a position as an associate professor (tenure track) of Nordic History at Åbo Akademi University.

From 2016 to 2018 I acted as professor of Finnish history at the University of Turku. I'm a docent of Finnish and European history at the University of Turku since 2015. I’m a docent of European history at the University of Helsinki since 2015.

From September 2016 to September 2019 I was adjunct associate professor at the University of Luxembourg.

From 2013 to 2016 I held at the University of Helsinki a major postdoctoral grant from the Academy of Finland for the project Diligent aristocracy: Nobility, service and work in Sweden, from the Great Northern War to the Napoleonic Wars.

From 2012 to 2014 I was visiting research fellow at the University of Northampton.

Before entering academia, I worked a decade in scholarly and academic publishing at the Finnish Literature Society.
