Teaching

I currently teach courses and give lectures at the Department of Historical Studies at University of Gothenburg on Holocaust memory, cultural heritage, and urban history. I have developed and teach two history modules for students in both the BA History programme and the teaching programme - scroll down for more information. I currently also give lectures and hold seminars on the following two courses: the advanced history course 'HI2180 Therapy for Conflictual Histories,' and the BA cultural heritage course 'KA1230 Cultural Heritage Pedagogics.' I furthermore supervise BA History students' final theses on themes of cultural interaction, urban history, minorities, migration, and ethnomusicology. I teach in both English and Swedish. 

Based on my pedagogic education from University of Southampton (U.K.) and University of Gothenburg (Sweden), I build my teaching around the students' own work with primary sources. My pedagogic foundation is based on the idea that history as a discipline becomes interesting, relatable and useful for future work when students learn about different source materials and through interpretive assignments practice their analytical abilities. My seminars therefore aim to introduce the historian's methodological applications of theories through individual and group assignments. 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 informative sessions, followed by longer in-class assignments, group discussions and presentations.
