About Carolina Uppenberg

I received my PhD in Economic History in 2018, with my thesis "Servants and masters. Gender, contract, and power relations in the servant institution in Sweden, 1730-1860". My dissertation project deals with servants in husbandry during the agrarian revolution in Sweden, ca 1750-1860 and is part of the project "Female Labour during the Early Industrialisation of Sweden - Construction and Reality". In the dissertation I study power relations in the household and how the servant institution can be understood as a labour market and as a gender relationship, using advisory literature and judicial material. Other research interests are gender theory, women's work and social organization during the pre-industrial and early industrial period.  In my Master thesis I wrote about women’s position in unions and debates about women’s work. I have taught at method courses and about the Swedish gender equality and family politics, and at the Bachelor’s thesis course at the European Studies programme.
