The study is built around the thesis that witchcraft was constructed by means of a range of media in which gender, emotions and experience acted as important drivers, and in which Christian IV’s notion of what constituted a ‘good’ Lutheran king were centre stage. At this interface, the persecution of those suspected of witchcraft was not simply possible, but unavoidable.

Rasmus Glenthøj | Victory has 100 fathers and defeat is an orphan. This is certainly true of the Second Schleswig War. All political parties in Denmark washed their hands and blamed their political opponent or foreign powers. The aim of this project is to explore the political narratives that they created and how they have affected Danish politics, historiography, art, and national identity in the last 150 years.

Asbjørn Sonne Nørgaard | Not all citizens are equally engaged in politics, and only few citizens pursue a political career. Differences in social resources partially explains why.

Voters’ personality traits are associated with differences in political trust and engagement, and the typical politician is much more outgoing and assertive than the average voter.

This article outlines a new research project concerning the American system of presidential libraries and their role in the creation of presidential legacies. It also discusses, in more general terms, some of the ways in which memories and commemorations of past presidents are being constructed, institutionalised – and sometimes weaponised.

Lars Buchhave | One of the greatest questions in the history of mankind is whether life exists elsewhere in the Universe. Astonishingly, a clear path towards resolving this question has recently emerged. Recent advances field of exoplanets have revealed an astounding prevalence of Earth-like planets, allowing us to discover and characterise temperate Earth-like exoplanets around the closest and thus brightest stars.
