On this page you can find an up-to-date list of my publications, classified by category.
I welcome inquiries and proposals to contribute to edited volumes and special issues. I have experience in both reviewing manuscript submissions and in helping colleagues translate articles, reports and research proposals. I mostly work with Swedish, Latin, French, German, Italian, and English sources. I am happy to help when I can!
