We aim this workshop to capture wide student and researcher interest across History, Gender Studies, Fine Arts and the History of Emotions. It is intended to discuss the many benefits and also the methodological challenges when working with gender, power and materiality – both in historical research and in applied museological environments.

Associate Professor Svante Norrhem began his career at Umeå University where he received his doctoral degree in 1994. Since 2014 he has been Associate Professor of History at Lund University. His research focuses on early modern women's and gender history, LGBT history, and lately, the history of diplomacy. He has published six monographs on women and gender in early modern Swedish history and, most recently, Flattering Alliances. Scandinavia, Diplomacy and the Austrian-French Balance of Power, 1648–1740 (Nordic Academic Press, 2013) with Peter Lindström. With Professor James Daybell (Plymouth), he has received funding from the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council to create networks between gender scholars and museum professionals to enhance gender and LGBT interpretation and curation, working closely with Skarhult Castle (Scania), the V&A (London) and the Vasa Museum (Stockholm).

This masterclass is presented by the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence of the History of Emotions, The University of Western Australia's Institute for Advanced Studies and the Forrest Research Foundation Visiting Fellowship program.

Associated event sponsored by IAS/CHE/Forrest Research Foundation.
