About me

I am Professor in Intellectual history/History of Ideas. I am also Director of Graduate Studies at the Department of Culture and Aesthetics.

I have worked at Stockholm University since 2012, and received my PhD at the University of Gothenburg in 2007. I have been a Visiting Scholar at the Institut für Philosophie at Potsdam Universität, at Sophiapol Research Centre at Université Paris-X Nanterre and at New School for Social Research in New York City.



My current research focuses on history of philosophy, theory of history, historical time, memory and historical justice.
