After my thesis defense in Spring 2016, about Johannes Magnus’ major work of history, the Historia de omnibus Gothorum Sueonumque regibus, I have continued working on two smaller projects linked to Johannes Magnus. The first, supported by a grant from Birgit and Gad Rausing’sstiftelse, is a study of the marginalia in Johannes Magnus’ copy of Marco Polo’s work, kept in the Vatican Library. My resulting article is under final revision. The other, current project, is supported by grants from Gullberg/Thott and Åke Wiberg, and is about marginalia too, but by King Eric XIV. Some of his books are preserved and kept in Uppsala and Stockholm. One of them is a copy of Johannes’ historical work.

In addition, I have been one of the editors of Arne Jönsson’s newly finished 800-page Festschrift, written an article for a yearbook (Vetenskapssocieteten), and participated in two conferences with a presentation, in Oslo and in Vilnius, and in three as a listener (once in Uppsala and twice in Lund).
