About me

Professor in History, Maritime History
Director of the Centre for Maritime Studies


Research Areas:

  • Maritime history
  • Global history
  • Economic and diplomatic history
  • 18th-century studies

Ongoing research:

In my ongoing research I study Swedish shipping and trade in the 18th century. In the focus is the complicated relationship between foreign policy and economic development. Sweden was neutral in many 18th-century conflicts and Swedish shipping and trade prospered. As the director of the Centre for Maritime Studies I stay for an open understanding of maritime history, from 16th-century naval warfare to the present container revolution. I am one of editors of the new textbook on Sweden’ maritime history Sjövägen till Sverige. Från 1500-talet till våra dagar (Seaway to Sweden. From the 16th Century to Present, 2016). I am also deeply interested in the field of global history.
