Research areas

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher and PI of the Augustinus-funded research project Reading Women. Karen Brahe and Female Book Ownership (1609-1736). The project investigates the unique library of the early modern Danish book collector Karen Brahe, and asks the following fundamental research question: What did early modern Danish women read? Through digital network analysis, the project aims to map the texts, contributors, and geographical locations that make up the Brahe collection, revealing the networks of transmission that underpin female book ownership and collecting practices in early modern Denmark. The project combines my research interests in women’s literary and cultural history, early modern material culture, and digital humanities.

I am guest editor of a forthcoming special issue on digital literary studies for Orbis Litterarum (2023).

I obtained my PhD from the University of Southern Denmark with a dissertation on the ballad collection of Francis James Child. My study of the Child collection considered the literary historical factors that influenced its production, and employed computational, quantitative methods to investigate the influence of factors such as gender and medium on ballad transmission and collecting practices during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
