All about me

My undergraduate studies started out in Lund in southern Sweden where I studied Italian language and literature followed by studies in general literature and, in the end, history. The result was an MA in Italian language and literature and an MA in history, as well as some extra credits in general literature. After the university degree I continued with doctoral studies in history at Lund University. After only one semester as a doctoral researcher at the Department of History in Lund, I continued to Florence to the European University Institute of the European Union, to do the Ph.D. in history there, with a focus on political rituals in the nationalist period during the 19th century.
After my Ph.D. I taught Modern European History at Halmstad College in Sweden for 2 years. Then I decided to stay on full-time in Italy and to become a freelance translator starting my own business. I work as a translator now since around 10 years, doing also revisions, football (soccer) interpreting and general interpreting when needed.
I am also a sommelier. I have developed seminars about wine terminology in English with fellow translators and sommeliers. This lead to the seminar Words & Wine with FISAR in Florence two years ago. This seminar was then developed to a more translator focused seminar last year with the title Words at the Winery. This all happened in connection with me being elected the president of the regional section, AITI Toscana, of AITI (the Italian Association of Translators and Interpreters) early in 2014. Words at the Winery was organized once by AITI Toscana at Il Borro close to Arezzo and once in the autumn by AITI Campania at Feudi di San Gregorio close to Avellino. Together with another sommelier friend I also teach wine in English at the courses for Fisar.
