Reseach areas

Between 2008 and 2012 I was part of the working group for Critical Heritage Studies as part of the university strategic initiative on strengthening cross-disciplinary research The working group consists of representatives from Faculty of Science (Department of Conservation), Faculty of Arts (Department of Historical Studies), Faculty f Social Sciences (Department of Global Studies), and Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts. This research initiative has contributed to the establishment of the Association of Critical Heritage Studies, with the focus to link heritage scholars across the globe in a network to debate and discuss cutting-edge research in the field of heritage studies. The inaugural conference of the Association of Critical Heritage Studies was held at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, in June 2012. The theme of the conference is ‘The Re/theorisation of Heritage Studies’. The second conference took place in Canberra, Australia, on 2-4 December 2014.

Conditions for how industrial heritage could be defined, described and understood, and developed into a societal resource to be used and re-used, constitutes my primary interest. It has expanded from course developments in the late 1990s, through a period as half time research officer at the industrial heritage site Forsvik Works employed by the regional administration for natural and cultural heritage, to plans for research. Papers have been presented at “BigStuff 2007”: in Bochum, Germany; “Reusing the industrial past” in Tampere, Finland; and at “Bhopal2011 – Requiem & Revitalization” in Bhopal, India. The Bhopal event was designed as a student workshop followed by an international workshop with the objective to investigate and discuss the former Union Carbide plant in Bhopal and the problems as well as possibilities in turning it into a memorial. 
I am member of the Swedish Association for Industrial heritageThe Association for Industrial Archaeology (AIA) and The International Committee for the Conservation of the Industrial Heritage (TICCIH).

Apart from industrial heritage, my interest is directed towards maritime history and heritage practices in that area. The ambition is to focus the heritage afloat and the problems to keep it in that way. The activities rest on cooperation with The Swedish Maritime Museums, and the reconstruction project of the paddle steamer Eric Nordevall II at Forsvik.

European landscape convention and questions related to cultural landscapes, vernacular building traditions as well as agriculturally based industrial production, constitutes a context for several issues that is under process of being developed into future research tasks.

The work within the Critical Heritage Studies initiative, together with activities in industrial heritage and maritime history, has led me to questions about how cultural heritage processes can be a resource for conflict resolution. I have thus come into contact with Cultural Heritage without Borders and especially their Albania-based operations. Based on the network that has been created through these contacts, ongoing formulation of future research projects within the theme "heritage, peace and reconciliation" is under way.
