About Stefan Öberg

I am a researcher and teacher at the Unit for Economic History. I am doing research on historical demography, with a focus on the long-term trends in height and health, and social history related to the interplay between working life and the household. I currently teach courses in introductory statistics and a long-term history course focused on the production, distribution and consumption of food. I am currently funded by a Wallander post-doctoral scholarship and is working in the project “Socioeconomic dimensions of diet and health during the 20th century: A longitudinal study” (funded by the Swedish Research Council, 2016–2019, PI Christer Lundh). I am also working on a project on the social history of Gothenburg funded by the Anna Ahrenberg foundation.
