Markus Lundström – Academia profile


Markus Lundström holds a PhD in Economic History and is an Associate Professor in Sociology and affiliate researcher at the Centre for Multidisciplinary Studies on Racism (CEMFOR) at Uppsala University, Sweden. His historical-sociological publication record includes two research monographs and twenty peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters. His fascism research focuses on how radical-nationalist ideas travel and transfigure through time. He recently published a co-authored article entitled “Radical-Nationalist Podcasting under a Post-Fascist Condition” that employs the original method of podcast ethnography to explore how fascist temporalities are deployed by Swedish radical nationalists today (Fascism, 2021). Besides fascism studies, Lundström’s research also concerns the political histories and historiographies of social movements, with a particular focus on anarchism. His studies also include racism in Sweden, with the recent publication Barns perspektiv på svensk vardagsrasism (Sociologisk forskning, 2022, English translation Children’s Perspectives on Everyday Racism in Sweden), building a methodology that includes children as co-researchers. Here, he also outlines how everyday racism is experienced and resisted in Swedish primary schools. Lundström has for several years been co-coordinator of NORFAS together with Nicola Karcher and is a member of the NORFAS steering committee.
