2017) and "From Household Economy to Family Business" (together with
Jarna Heinonen) and "Statutory Invisibility: Urban Business Women's Legal
and Political Rights" (together with Jarkko Keskinen), both in Women in
Business Families from Past to Present (Routledge 2018). She has also published
a monograph in Swedish on the eighteenth-century midwifery "De frimodiga:
Barnmorskor, födande och kroppslighet på 1700-talet" (SLS 2016). Professor
