Emma Hilborn

Emma Hilborn holds a PhD in history. Hilborn's thesis is entitled Världar i Brand. Fiktion, politik och romantik i det tidiga 1900-talets ungsocialistiska press (2014). In her research, Hilborn is mainly interested in cultural performance and practice in the late 1800s and early 20th century. Hilborn has worked for the Centre for Oresund Region Studies in a pilot project on how cycling was presented to a female audience in the Swedish women's magazines Idun and Svensk damtidning, as well as the Danish Damernes Blad and Hjemmet during the period 1890–1925. This resulted in the article The elegant cyclist: Cycling, fashion and femininity in Swedish and Danish women’s magazines at the turn of the 20th century. The article can be read in Swedish here.

You can read more about Hilborn's research and publications on her page in Lund University's research portal.
