I was born in 1952 and became a teacher in 1980.Then I worked as a history and social science teacher in high school for many years. Meanwhile, in the late 1980s and early 1990s, I was a PhD student at the Department of History at Lund University where I took my PhD in 1998. In my thesis I investigated power relations on the rental market in late 19th and early 20th century Malmö. Since then I have been linked to the Dpt. of History in Lund in various shapes and to different extent – as a teacher, an assistant professor, a researcher and a director at the Center for Labor History in Landskrona. As a university teacher I have taught in different fields, such as social-, labor-, urban- and environmental history. In 2009-2013 I was also employed in a research project financed by the Swedish Research Council on xenophobia and labor movement in postwar Landskrona (see publ.list). My current research deals with changes in the Swedish trucking industry and the profession of truck drivers. During the fall quarter of 2014 I teach the course "Cinema, Migration and the Making of the Other in Modern Sweden" together with Ann-Kristin Wallengren.
