I have a master in Danish (major) history/cultural studies (minor) from UCPH. My main research field is the physical expression of texts and the form in which they are transmitted, mostly medieval manuscripts and early printed books. The physical expression of a text has an impact on our understanding and absorption of content, and can also be linked to the function of a text, which makes the physical expression a vital research object.

My current research (Ph.D. project: Between Manuscripts and Prints) is a study of developments within the physical expression of handwritten and printed versions of provincial laws from Scania and Zealand 1450-1650. During this period a new way of producing written text arrives with the printing press, alongside with a continued production of handwritten manuscripts, which leads to the co-existing of two types of media. The focus is how the physical expression of each type relates to each other and interchanges, for instance in a copy/model-relation.

Between Manuscripts and Prints - Physical expression of handwritten and printed law texts c. 1450-1650.

The Ph.D. project is a study of developments within the physical expression of handwritten and printed versions of medieval provincial laws from Scania and Zealand between 1450-1650. During this period a new way of producing written text arrives with the printing press, alongside with a continued production of handwritten manuscripts, which leads to the co-existing of two types of media (print and manuscript). The focus is how the physical expression of each type relates to each other and interchanges. This is done by analysing what happens to the visual expression in a model/copy-relation, when this includes a shift in media, and how the handwritten and printed text co-exist in composites and interleaved prints.
