Malin Nordvall

Doctoral student, Technology Management and Economics

Malin Nordvall is a PhD candidate in history of technology at the Division of Science, Technology and Society. She is interested in the large number of projects with the objective to increase the proportion of women among the university-educated engineering community initiated by engineering actors since the 1970s. Departing from previous historical research on the gendered university-engineering profession, Malin explores the connection between the university-educated engineering profession’s historically shaped masculine values and the fragmentation of gender equality work. Of key importance for understanding the changing nature of gender equality projects over time is analysis of the relationship between, on the one hand, problem and solution formulation among gender equality actors in the engineering profession and, on the other hand, contemporary gender equality, labor market and educational policy discourses.

Malin is engaged in the international network Society for the History of Technology. She frequently gives lectures related to her research within courses at Chalmers, has supervised several bachelor projects and functions as course assistant in the MTS course History of Technology.
