Knowledge and Society in Scandinavia in the 1960s and 1970s

PIs: Johan Östling and Niklas Olsen; participant David Larsson Heidenblad

The aim of this project is to develop the history of knowledge as a scholarly field in collaboration between research institutions at the departments of history at universities of Copenhagen and Lund. The project includes two workshops that gather researchers from the Scandinavian countries. Focusing on three areas of knowledge – economics, environment and the humanities – we will discuss how the history of knowledge of postwar Scandinavia can be written.

“Knowledge and Society in Scandinavia in the 1960s and 1970s” runs between 2018 and 2019, and is funded by the Einar Hansen Research Foundation.
