About the group
Members of the group largely work with seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Dano-Norwegian, English and French literature. As comparatists, however, we principally take an interest in literature in all languages which we are able to read.
Several members of the Book History group participate in the research project LitCit - Literary Citizens of the World. Tracing the transnational crossroads of books in Early Modern Norway. The Project is funded by the Norwegian Research Council and managed by the National Library. More information is found here.
