Primary fields of research

  • Library history
  • Information history and the history of the information society
  • Theories and traditions in information- and cultural studies

  • Rhetorical genre theory
  • Information networks in the city. Copenhagen 1800-1810 (current project)

For convenient purposes I usually refer to my research field as information history though my interest broadly speaking relate to other fields within cultural and social history. Though I started within the field of library history I'm now interested in a hodgepodge characterized by book history, media history, communcation history but adressing the informational aspects. By this I mean that my key focus is how information has been understood, used, dispersed, organized, disciplined etc. in different periods and how the concept of information has changed too.
