My overall research interest concern the history of Sápmi and northern Sweden. I focus on the relationship between human and nature, with an emphasis on social resilience, reindeer husbandry and the importance of place. I also have an interest in childbirth and midwifery in northern rural areas and what the development of midwifery can tell us about social relations, acculturation and gender.
