Rudberg's research interests are in the fields of modern European history and Jewish history, in particular questions that intersect the political and the social. I am working on several research projects that deal with Jewish history in the post-war years. One of my research projects is concerned with efforts to rehabilitate Holocaust survivors in Sweden in the post-war years. I have co-edited a volume about early Holocaust memory, and I am also co-authoring a book on Sweden-Israel relations.

Pontus Rudberg is Associate Professor in history and a researcher at the Hugo Valentin Centre.
His main research interests are in the fields of modern European history and Jewish history, in particular questions that intersect the political and the social. The doctoral dissertation, published under the title The Swedish Jews and the Holocaust (Routledge 2017), focused on how the Jewish communities in Sweden responded to the Holocaust. From 2019 to 2021 he was the project leader of the Swedish part of Yerusha, an international research and documentation that explores sources of Jewish history in European archives. Rudberg is currently working on several research projects that deal with Jewish history in the post-war years. The main project, funded by the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) is concerned with Swedish rehabilitation and re-emigration aid to Holocaust survivors in the post-war years. Together with the historian Johannes Heuman he led the project Early Holocaust Memory in Sweden: Archives, Testimonies and Reflections and co-edited a volume with the same title (2021). He is also co-writing a book on early Sweden-Israel relations together with the legal historian Michael Livingston.
Rudberg has also conducted research in military history and was a visiting fellow at University of Oxford’s Changing Character of War Programme (2017) and has a research project dealing with Swedish post-war defense diplomacy and security policy. With a background as a Museum curator at the Jewish Museum and the City Museum of Stockholm, he also has a strong interest in museums and public history.
