Fields of expertise

Most of my research has focused on Latin American and Caribbean history in the 18th and 19th centuries, and has circled principally around two broad themes: 1) the transition from monarchical/colonial rule to republican nation-states in Latin America and its social and political consequences; and 2) Scandinavian migration to and within Latin America between independence (ca 1820) until World War II.

Outside these areas, I have broad interests in Latin American, Caribbean, European and global history from ca 1500 to the present, and I have supervised a number of bachelor, master and Phd theses, especially on 20th-century Latin American history.
