JEFF WERNER

I am professor at the Dept. of Art History at Stockholm University, and head of the Master programme Curating Art including Management and Law. Recently I have mostly been working with Visual Culture Studies, critical whiteness studies and museum issues. This is my private homepage. Here I gather articles and essays I have published, and reflect on research project I'm working with. Under "Publicerat" to the left, you'll find links to articles in both Swedish and English.

My recent book "Blond and Blue-eyed" deals with how and when Swedes started to regard themselves as white, blond and blue-eyed. And, how images, films, design and architecture have participated in maintaining this notion. The book was released, in Swedish and English on April 1, 2014. Lately I have published several articles that developes ideas and themes from this book. Some of them will shortly be translated to English.
