... wherein the problems of history, nationalism, identity etc are discussed.

V�lkommen - Tervetuloa - Willkommen

 

My name is Ainur Elmgren. I am a doctoral cadidate - Ph D student - at the department of history, Lund University in Sweden. I wanted to create a website that deals with my favourite subjects, sometimes in short, light-hearted articles, sometimes in serious academic essays. Most of the texts are in English, unless stated otherwise. You will find my works under "Features". The "Interactive" part is yet limited to a tongue-in-cheek poll, but do enjoy the "Links" section, where I will continue to collect interesting sites and articles about various issues. I do not necessarily agree or endorse the analyses or opinions expressed on those sites, but they are worth a look. I am also compiling a brief list of recommended "Literature". Enjoy your visit.

My definition of history is perhaps wider than you would expect. History (in the words of the Research School at my department) is seen as a perspective in time, measuring change and continuity. The role of history in the present is especially interesting. This page is also devoted to issues of identity, ethnicity, culture, nationalism and the rich imagery that surrounds all those concepts.
