My name is Thomas and I’m a writaholic!
My full name is Thomas Söderqvist (né Sven Thomas Rickardsson). On the pages under this heading I summarize my former academic work, including my curriculum vitae, and say a little more about my current emeritus life. For my current research project, see ‘About the project‘.
In November 2016, I retired from the University of Copenhagen after having been an active academic scholar (researcher and teacher) in several countries and institutions for more than half a century — mainly in the field of history of biology/biomedicine and medical museology.
I’m currently emeritus professor at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark, where I’m primarily affiliated with my former museum, Medical Museion, which is part of the Department of Public Health, but also with the cross-faculty Center for Healthy Aging. In addition, I have a secondary affiliation as adjunct emeritus professor in the Department of Arts and Cultural Sciences at Lund University in Sweden.
