Background and activities

My scientific work can be grouped into three main areas. These are 1) WW2 history and the aftermath of war and conflict, 2) social studies and history didactic theory and practice, and 3) current indigenous perspectives, Sami culture and society. In several of my works I have studied different perspectives related to World War II and the post-war period. In this work, I have been concerned with how different aspects of the world war have been understood, interpreted and presented in the light of memory theory and history didactic theory. Thematically, my work can be summarized as historical research with didactic adaptations of war and conflict, and studies of the position of indigenous peoples (South Sami) in majority societies in the past and present.
