Ingrid Martins Holmberg, Senior lecturer in Conservation of Built Heritage, Department of Conservation. E-mail
Ingrid Martins Holmberg gained her PhD in 2006. The prized dissertation On the urban surface: On the historicization of Haga put a Foucauldian perspective on the discursive play that successively transformed ordinary urban built environments into heritage objects. In subsequent publications this perspective has been developed also in the direction of ANT. She has been acting director of studies for the BA programme in Built Heritage 2006-2012. Current research concerns Landscape dimensions of Roma heritage (Riksantikvarieämbetet 2012-2014), Gentrification, Urban Renewal & Heritage and Dwelling, commodification and the heritage entrepreneurs.
