Current research

My primary research areas are Danish language (from the Renaissance to the present), digital humanities (digital textual scholarship, corpus linguistics), and material/artefactual philology. My research focuses on foundational aspects of communication and the reflexivity and dynamics of language, in particular with a focus on sign making and contextualization in written communication and on the semiology of writing, including material aspects of reading and writing.
