About Anna-Karin Larsson

Anna-Karin Larsson is a historian and senior lecturer in social work.


Anna-Karin Larsson's research areas are in the history of medicine, gender and childhood history, especially in the 19th and 20th centuries. Her dissertation The Girl in Medicine (2007) dealt with medical conceptions about children, adolescents, gender, health and morbidity around the turn of the century.

In the research project Youth mental health in Swedish medical literature 1970-2017, the view on the mental health of children and young people is examined from a gender perspective. The project has been carried out within the framework of the interdisciplinary research program The three-cities study.
