In her PhD thesis, Annika Windahl-Pontén studies identity and materiality in the household of Carl Linnaeus. Using a combination of innovative sources like clothes, textiles, portraits, taxation lists, and more ‘traditional’ texts, such as dissertations, lectures notes, and letters, Windahl-Pontén has been able to explore the formation of Linnaeus’ scientific persona. Here, she will shortly present Linnaeus’ household and its organisation, and she will give some examples of performative practices occurring both in lectures about dietetics and in the everyday life of the household.
