Karen Marie Leth-Nissen
I undertake empirical research investigating the process of change in the Danish folk church under the pressures of individualization and marketization. Specifically, I investigate how these pressures may affect the folk church's ability to build up social capital in Danish society.
Currently, I am conducting interviews all over Denmark, testing the hypotheses from "Baptism or Not" (Leth-Nissen and Trolle 2015). The new project is called "Baptism today" and is a research collaboration between Centre for Church Research and Danish Church Development Agency.
