Daniel Svensson

Forskare at Chalmers, Technology Management and Economics, Science, Technology and Society

Daniel Svensson holds a PhD in history and is currently a researcher and lecturer at the Division of Science, Technology and Society at Chalmers University of Technology. His research is within the fields of history of science, sport history and environmental history. Svensson has among other things taken interest in the scientization of training methods in endurance sports (i.e. cross-country skiing), and meetings between scientific and experiential knowledge. He also pursues research on the shifting ideas about landscape, heritage and mobility during the 19th and 20th century. Relations between movement (running, skiing, walking, herding, hunting etc.) and landscape, and how certain landscapes have been shaped by small-scale landscape use for long periods of time, are important aspects. This research about the landscape as cultural heritage relates to questions about sustainable development and the role of science in such a development. Svensson also writes poetry and has published two poetry collections.
