I am a Ph.D. candidate with an interest in how the patent office was constructed and presented to the public. My dissertation is part of the PASSIM project and explores the history of the Swedish Patent and Registration office, and how they created and communicated their history. As a Ph.D. candidate it is a privilege to be part of PASSIM and get a chance to learn from, and discuss research with, such established scholars and researchers.
My first article is about the jubilee exhibition of the Swedish Patent and Registration Office in 1941, and what kind of display technologies and narratives that were used to educate the public about the patent office and the patent system. My dissertation will contribute insight into how culture conventions and dominant norms have shaped the construction of the Swedish Patent and Registration Office narrative, and how the history was presented to the public discourse. I have been academically trained as an interdisciplinary researcher with a bachelor- and a master’s degree in culture, society, and media at the Department for Studies of Social Change and Culture at Linköping University.
