About me

My research focuses mainly on the history of medicine, curriculum studies, and visual and material culture in science and health education. I am currently working on the introduction of medical posters and dissection of small animals in Swedish schools during the first half of the twentieth century. My latest publications include articles on the use of film in HIV/AIDS education, historical perspectives on value conflicts in the production and distribution of pharmaceuticals, patients as collective actors, and collaborative learning in higher education.
