Associated Partner 5: Birgitta Svensson

Professor of European Ethnology, Stockholm University, Sweden

E-mail: birgitta.svensson@nordiskamuseet.se

Website: www.su.se/pub/jsp/polopoly.jsp?d=10940&a=44236

Research Profile:

Born in 1948, I finished my M.A in the social sciences in 1972 with a major in human geography. After having worked for fifteen years as an administrator of cultural environment planning, I returned in 1988 to Lund University and the Department of European Ethnology where I was trained as an ethnologist. I took my doctoral degree in 1993 with a dissertation about the tinkers’ encounter with justice, where I tried to show how the cultural construction of outsiderhood works under different societal regimes over three hundred years. Between the years 1993 and 2001 I was senior Lecturer and as of 1997 associate professor in Lund doing research on relations between nature and culture as well as on identity formation among intellectuals and criminals.

Since 2001 I hold the Hallwyl professorship and chair of European ethnology in Stockholm. My profile as a teacher and researcher emphasizes identity issues related to people, cultural products and norms and their variation across and relations to spaces and places. I have written extensively on city-life, landscaping, gender, minority-issues as well as questions of cultural heritage, different forms of bodily expressive culture and methodological and theoretical questions in the history of ethnology.

Some of my current publications in English are articles like: ‘The cultural boundaries of citizenship’, ‘L’ethnologie et les musées. Quelques changements historico-culturels’, ‘Inmates in motion – metamorphosis as governmentality’, ‘Facts and artefacts in cultural history museums. The material turn in research’, ‘The end of biography: Plotless individualism’, ‘Customizing’ and the book Landscape values of rural inhabitants in the Sound region. Two case studies; reflections and theoretical considerations on culture/nature relations and social space, together with two other researchers. I am on the editorial board of the journal Ethnologia Europaea and editor of Ethnologia Scandinavica. A Journal for Nordic ethnology.
