Universal Suffrage? Voting Restrictions and Disenfranchisement in Sweden after 1921
December 7 @ 15:00 - 16:30
Welcome to a NLHN digital talk about the book Universal Suffrage? Voting Restrictions and Disenfranchisement in Sweden after 1921.
In 2021, Sweden celebrates one hundred years of universal suffrage and what has commonly been described as the end of the struggle for voting rights and democracy. The newly published book Universal Suffrage? Voting Restrictions and Disenfranchisement in Sweden after 1921 – based on a research project with the same name – challenges these narratives. It explores the many voting restrictions that remained after 1921, and highlights the continuous struggle for expanded suffrage.
In this talk, the book’s editors Annika Berg and Martin Ericsson, together with the project leader Fia Sundevall, will present the project’s main findings and arguments.
Annika Berg is an associate professor of the history of ideas at the Department of Culture and Aesthetics, Stockholm University.
Martin Ericsson is an associate professor of history at the Department of History, Lund University.
Fia Sundevall is an associate professor of economic history at the Swedish Labour Movement’s Archives and Library, and the Department of Economic History and International Relations, Stockholm University.
