Person

Having studied History and Latin at Lund University I took a PhD in Classical Archaeology and Ancient History in 2016. My thesis Femina princpes. Livia's position in the Roman state is a thorough study of the foundations of Livia's position as the first empress of Rome. The thesis was awarded with Hainska priset 2017. After having worked on the position of an empress, I was keen to find a way to study the opposite; female resistance to the imperial power, and I am now conducting a project entitled Roman Women on Trial. Female resistance in ancient Rome, granted by the Swedish Research Council. In 2018 I was awarded a visiting fellowship at Durham University, UK.

I have been a working member of, among other, the board of Lund University, the board of the Joint Faculties of Humanity and Theology, the board of Lund University Doctoral Union, and the board of The Historical Museum at Lund University, and I'm very fond of giving lectures both within and outside academia.

About the research

My research is mainly oriented towards the Roman culture in general and the political history of Rome in particular. My PhD thesis Femina princpes. Livia's position in the Roman state is a thorough study of the foundations of Livia's position as the first empress of Rome. After having worked on the position of an empress, I was keen to find a way to study the opposite; female resistance to the imperial power, and I am now conducting a project entitled Roman Women on Trial. Female resistance in ancient Rome, granted by the Swedish Research Council. I have also written on topics such as the Roman triumph and the Classical antiquity in popular culture, and I am the scientific adviser for the Nordic artistic project Livia’s Room
