I have a Master of Arts (MA) in History fra University of Copenhagen (2016) with elective studies in Museology an Cultural Heritage. I wrote my master thesis on the militant anti-fascist mobilisation on the Danish left 1930-36.
Professionally, I have previously worked with:
I am active in the Nordic research network, Politics From Below, which primarily researches on radical street public and political mobilisation.
Besides my research I am a member of the editorial board of the journal Arbejderhistorie (SFAH) and active in the Danish Society of Labour History.
I am a Phd research fellow in history specialised in political culture and youth political radicalisation in the Interwar Period.
My Phd-project, Fighting for the Streets, is investigating how and why the political youth movements in Denmark and the Nordic countries was inspired by militant, transnational currents in their agitation and fight over the opinion-making in the physical public space in the Interwar Period.
The project focuses on radicalisation of propaganda methods in the form of uniforms, use of symbols and offensive street mobilisation as well as the confrontations with political opponents and authorities which this militant language ensued.
While my case is the youth organisations on the Danish left- and right-wing in the years 1917-1940, the project contains transantional comparisons to the other Nordic countries and focusses on innovative transfer of idéers and fighting methods across borders.
