In 2014 Ipublished my dissertation on the Swedish poet Johan Gabriel Oxenstierna, and have since then published research articles as well as edited an anthology on other aspects of Swedish eighteenth-century literature. In a later project I have studied the history of literary studies in Sweden and its relation between national literature and world literature. My latest major publication is anessay collection on the poet Esaias Tegnér, edited by me and Jimmie Svensson. In general, I am fascinated by literature’s strange relation to space and time:how a work of art resists being confined to its immediate context and often demands a broad historical and cultural frame to be understood.
