My PhD project will examine how the secularization process took place in the everyday lives of children growing up in the late 19th century and early 20th century Sweden. I will study this by looking at changes in memory culture in schools and homes.

Sophie Winkler

Örebro University

Sophie’s PhD project addresses the educationalization of the woman question during the late 19th century in Paris, Berlin, and Stockholm comparatively. The thesis will examine the struggle for the image and consequently the field of action of bourgeois women as it was carried out in the arena of education. Special focus will be put on the power of state statistics as a mechanism of (implicitly) constituting social reality – rather than merely describing it.

Viktor Johansson

Stockholm University

My PhD project explores the history of the Swedish “pupils movement” and pupil self-organization on upper secondary schooling in Sweden.  My research will focus on the formation and potential transformations of pupils as a collective actor by deploying a social movement perspective on this phenomenon in the intersection between school and civil society.
