Currently most of my time is divided between researching manuscripts at the Arnamagnæan Collection, maintaining the website of my EU-funded project, Transtextual Networks, and finding exciting books for Kısmet Press, a newly establishing open-access publishing house, of which I am a co-founder. You can find further information on these as well as my most recent or forthcoming publications, presentations, and other activities on this page. I am also committed to keeping my plants alive in dark, cold Copenhagen.
This project investigates the history of the manuscripts in the Arnamagnæan Collection that contain texts in the Latin language and aims to create fully annotated online electronic catalogue records for this corpus.
Engaging with one of the most important elements of Europe’s cultural heritage, “Transtextual Networks” employs material evidence and technological tools to analyse relationships among texts in the Middle Ages.
Kısmet is an independent, not-for-profit, open access publishing company for the Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences. We published our first title in late 2016 (yay!). For more information see the official website of Kısmet Press.
