CIRCUS and Centre for Multidisciplinary Research on Religion and Society welcome you to a guest lecture with Prof. Mette Buchardt, Aalborg University.

Mette Buchardt is the head of the Centre for Education Policy Research at Aalborg University, Denmark. Her research traverses the disciplinary areas of the history of education, comparative welfare state studies, church history and historical religion research. Buchardt specializes in the relation between education and social reform in the European states from especially 19th century onwards, e.g. modernization and secularization, and the influence of migration on welfare state development historically and at present.

The lecture is arranged as part of the network Historical Study of National Christianities financed by CIRCUS. It is a joint seminar of Educational History at the Department of Education and The Higher Seminar in Church History at the Department of Theology.

Due to the pandemic you are invited to take part via Zoom. A link will be sent to registered participants before the lecture.
