New guest researcher at PRIVACY: Sari Nauman

We are happy to welcome Sari Nauman as our guest researcher.

Sari Nauman has a PhD in History from the University of Gothenburg.


My research focuses on early modern political culture, specifically relations of trust and uncertainty. Previously, I have studied the dwindling usage of political oaths, private relationships in diplomatic culture, and hospitality towards strangers. Currently, I am investigating the use of secrecy and information control in rebellions during Swedish Absolutism, 1680–1720.

The Swedish Research Council funds Sari Nauman's research, the project title is 'Hidden rebellions: Information control in Sweden, 1680-1720'. Her project is funded during 2020-2022.

We look forward to collaborating with Sari for the next two years.
