Primary fields of research

Literary and cultural history (especially Danish, English and German in the 19th and 20th centuries); Latin American prose literature; modern urban culture and architecture 

Current research

I am writing a book on the history of the city square and its reflection in literature; I am writing an article on the reflection of the Roman piazza in Danish culture; together with the architect Erik Brandt I am writing a book om cultural heritage as a tool in urban development (based on a winning project on the industrial heritage in Frederiksværk)


At the Faculty of Humanities my research is used as an example of the impact the humanities researchers have on society.
Read the case: Steely urban spaces: Winning proposal for regeneration in the town of Frederiksværk.
