About Ingrid Lyberg

Ingrid Lyberg commenced her doctoral studies in history in January 2023. She has a master's degree in Medieval English Literatures from the University of York, and a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Lund.

In her current research project, Ingrid Lyberg is studying the Swedish women's rights movement of the early twentieth century, particularly the first female physicians. The focus is on how feminists argued for racial hygiene, both in order to mitigate the spread of venereal disease and to achieve citizenship.

The preliminary title of Ingrid Lyberg's doctoral thesis is Pox, Parentage and Political Representation - Feminist Discourse on Venereal Disease, Eugenics and the Vote in Early Twentieth-Century Sweden.
