About Larsson Heidenblad

David Larsson Heidenblad is postdoctoral researcher at the Department of History, Lund.

He works at the intersection between environmental history, the history of knowledge, and media history. A key concept in his research is “circulation of knowledge”, which he has employed to analyse the emergence of modern environmentalism in Scandinavia in the late 1960s and early 1970s. He has a general interest in the post-war period and the societal reach and relevance of various forms of knowledge – environmental, humanistic, and financial.
