Primary fields of research
All aspects of the interaction between humans and their physical environment. Mainly in the early modern period.
I am presently writing a textbook in English on the environmental history of Denmark sine 1970. Concurrently i am enganged in three rather different fields of research. The first is about the modernization of Danish forestry c. 1880-1930. The second about 17th-century peri-urbanization and gentrification in the Copenhagen area. Finally, the third focusses upon imaginaries of environment and future represented in Danish public discourse of the 1970's that may provide the multifarious, present aspirations of sustainable development with new insights and vitality.
I teach and supervise within the following fields:
- Early modern Danish microhistory
- European and North American environmental and climate history since 1500 AD
- Danish and Scandinavian agrarian and forest history since 1500 AD
- Danish and Scandinavian landscape and settlement history since 1500 AD
- The histories of social relations, law and mentality in the Danish society of the 17th and 18th centuries
- The history of property right
