SUPERVISION

BA projects and MA theses
By 2012 I have supervised close to 50 MA theses and innumerable BA projects, mostly in Spanish and Historical studies, and a few in Business Language studies and American studies. The subjects include those of my own research and teaching, i.e. memory and identity, uses of history and identity politics, conceptual history, comics, Spanish culture and history, and Mexican Americans in the USA. The theoretical and conceptual framework has often been decisive when especially history students have asked for my supervision, and I have therefore often supervised MA theses beyond the particular geographical setting of my own work (e.g. Berlin, Danish museums and electronic music among others).

Study group, Historical studies
Founding and managing s study group for history students with the objective of discussing common challenges and themes related to the writing of MA theses. 2009-
