Research network in Denmark

The Danish Nineteenth-Century Research Network was established in the autumn of 2014. There are about 75 participants from universities and museums (primarily in Denmark). The participants represent fields such as history, art history, comparative literature, German, English, Scandinavian studies, religion and ethnography. Museums of art and cultural history are also represented. The network’s participants meet 3-4 times a year for seminars at which they present their work in progress and share their knowledge of current research projects and projects of dissemination. 

The objectives of the research network are to make the 19th century relevant today and to bring together researchers from a variety of academic fields and institutions. The network is open to anyone with an interest in research into the 19th century.

The research network has a steering committee which organises seminars and external activities. If you would like to participate in the work of the network, please contact us
