Research areas

My field of research was almost focused on literature, gender and sexuality. My theoretical horizon was shaped fundamentally by the thinking of Michel Foucault who I introduced in my MA-theses. This resulted in a small, very popular book, Det tomme menneske (The empty human being)  that has been reprinted numerous times (latest in 2018). I was the first to introduce queer theory to Danish literary studies when I published my ph.d-theses on Karen Blixen in 2001. I wrote a queer reading of Herman Bang in 2003 and a "scandalous" book queering Hans Christian Andersen in 2005. For the last ten years I have focused on queering Danish literary history finding and analyzing forgotten homosexual literature from the 19. and early 20. century. The result will be a book in English (and perhaps Danish) on Danish homosexual literature, perhaps also including Swedish and Norwegian material.
