This blog is mostly for fun (as understood by a historian whose fields of expertise include social and cultural history in the late medieval and early modern period). Entries focus mostly on issues and events connected to history, culture, society and miscellanea. Short summaries in English and Swedish are included every now and then (please see categories ”In English” and ”På svenska”).
Every now and then, I try to update these pages in order to offer some more information about my research focusing on late medieval and early modern gender history and social history. You can take a look at the Curriculum Vitae and List of Publications in English or check my previous homepage for short summaries about research etc. (Please see http://users.utu.fi/anulah.)
You can also read something almost completely different: Ultra-Condensed Pride and Prejudice as interpreted by the undersigned.
