About Anna Bohlin

After my Ba (Hon) in Politics and Social Anthropology at SOAS, University of London, I completed a doctoral degree in social anthropology at University of Gothenburg in 2001. Between 1997 and 2008 I was involved in research and teaching in South Africa. I am currently Associate Professor in Social Anthropology and from 2011 I have been a lecturer in the subject at the School of Global Studies.


Areas of interest
My research interests include second-hand and re-use, alternative heritage practices, memory and material culture. Previous research has focused on the link between memory and place and its significance for processes of democratisation, citizenship and nation building. I have investigated memory and uses of history within the South African government’s land restitution programme; place, memory and citizenship in urban contexts and the related field of reconciliation, public memory,  and other forms of heritage-related activities. Other areas of interest have included participation in cultural resource management as well as the management of "nature" and "culture" within the restoration of watercourses.

Current research

Co-leader of the Project Re:heritage. Circulation and marketization of things with history, Swedish Research Council, 2014-2017. The Project examines the circulation of material culture on second-hand markets from a heritage perspective. 

Part of the leadership group of Critical Heritage Studies, an international research network at Gothenburg University.

Teaching and tutoring
I teach within the Ma Programme in Global Studies as well as a range of courses on topics such as health, reconciliation, urban studies, heritage and material culture. I also supervise within the PhD-programme in social anthropology.
