Teaching

I currently teach at the Department of Historical Studies at University of Gothenburg. I mainly hold seminars and give lectures related to urban history, Jewish studies, European history, Digital Humanities, historical methodologies, and theory of knowledge. I have developed history modules for students in the BA History program and the teaching training program - scroll down for more information. I also supervise BA History students during the writing of their final thesis on urban history, migration, ethnomusicology, and cultural interaction. I teach in Swedish and English. 

 

Based on my pedagogic education from University of Southampton (U.K.) and University of Gothenburg (Sweden), I build my teaching around students' own work with primary sources. To hone methodological creativity, students are introduced to various primary sources; from receipts and taxation records, to personal letters, newspaper articles, and material objects. Students taking my courses can expect shorter lectures, followed by longer in-class assignments, group discussions and presentations.

EU1330 Research Methods in European Studies, BA European Programme (third year module; lecturer; seminar tutor)

EU2114 European Integration in Theory and Practice, MA European Studies (MA module; seminar tutor)
