Academic interests

My research is focused on Scandinavian literature from the 19th century up till today, with a main focus on Henrik Ibsen. My main research interests include the reception and translation history of Scandinavian authors like Henrik Ibsen, Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson, August Strindberg and Knut Hamsun in Europe (especially England, France, Germany and Italy). In connection to these areas I have also developed an interest in copyright history and how it can be used for a better understanding of literary history. More recently, I have developed an interest in the academic study of Western esotericism and how it has influenced selected Scandinavian authors. At the moment I am working at a research project on the Ibsen reception by different branches of the Theosophical Society.
