Umeå University
Participates in 1 Session
Helena Wangefelt Ström is a PhD Candidate in Museology at Umeå University, Sweden. She is working on a thesis on heritagisation of religion as an act of control, employing a case study on early modern Swedish travellers to Rome and Venice. Her Master degree from Uppsala University in History of Ideas and Science (2011) explored the relation to Catholic artefacts and memories in 17th century Lutheran Orthodox Sweden. During past years she has been awarded the C M Lerici scholarship which allowed her to spend one academic year in Rome and Venice.
In the late 1990’s she was part of a cataloguing project on Queen Christina’s manuscript collection in the Vatican library. She has had several bursaries and scholarships from, among others, the Swedish Institute in Rome and the
Royal Swedish Academy of Letters, History and Antiquities, to work in libraries and archives in Rome and Venice.
 
Helena has co-arranged international workshops in Rome and Umeå connected to topics on religion, heritage and cultural contexts. She has presented papers in international conferences in various fields such as sociology of religion, cultural history and critical heritage studies, and arranged a session in the ACHS conference in Canberra (2014) on sacredness, heritage and authenticity. She is a member of research groups EMoDiR (Early Modern Religious Dissent and Radicalism, www.emodir.net) and UGPS (Umeå Group for Premodern Studies).
 
Helena has published articles in Swedish academic peer-reviewed journals, among which ”Heligt – Hotfullt – Historiskt. Kulturarvifieringen av det katolska i 1600-talets Sverige” (2011) in Lychnos, annual for History of Science and Ideas in Sweden. She has articles accepted and under preparation for an international anthology (planned for publication in 2016).
Research interests include contemporary heritage politics, uses of the sacred past, religious heritage in conflicts, religious controversy, early modern history, history of collections and museums, relics and sacred materiality, and Italian – Scandinavian relations in the early modern period.
