    My research field is information history though my interest broadly speaking relate to other fields within cultural and social history. Though I started within the field of library history I'm now interested in a hodgepodge characterized by book history, media history, communcation history but adressing the informational aspects. By this I mean that my key focus is how information has been understood, used, dispersed, organized, disciplined etc. in different periods and how the concept of information has changed too.

    Primary fields of research

    • Information history and the history of the information society
    • History and theory of surveillance
    • History of Knowledge
    • Book and library history
