I read prehistoric archaeology, social anthropology and physical anthropology in Germany, England and Wales. In 1998 I gained my PhD and was subsequently employed in research and teaching at the University of Gothenburg (1998-9), the University of Cambridge (1999-2002), the Swedish National Heritage Board in Stockholm (2002-4) and the University of Lund (2005-8). Since 2008 I am working at Kalmar where I am currently a Professor of Archaeology. In 2017 I was appointed to a UNESCO Chair in Heritage Futures at Linnaeus University.

Afterlives Salon

02/03/2017

This salon to accompany the current Octagon exhibition Cabinets of Consequence will explore how heritage and other related forms of conservation practices (including nuclear waste management) make futures.  How do we use material culture to stitch futures from pasts? What do we conserve? What do we get rid of? What do we allow to change? This Salon will be staged as a series of conversations across various themes currently being explored within the Heritage Futures research programme,Event held at Haldane Room, Wilkins Building , Gower Street WC1
