Associate Professor

Primary fields of research

All aspects of the interaction between humans and their physical environment. Mainly in the early modern period.

Current research

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  imaginaries of growth and limitations represented in Danish public discourse since 1945. Finally, the third focusses upon 17th-century peri-urbanization and gentrification in the Copenhagen area.

Teaching

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
