Large grant for research on moments of enchantment

Backed by a grant of almost 6 million DKK Associate Professor Cecilie Rubow will for the next four years be looking at how secular Scandinavians are affected by intense experiences in nature. The research will contribute with a new understanding about the ethical and political implications of enchantment.

The project, which is funded by the Indepent Research Fund Denmark, will be based on field work in Denmark, Norway and Sweden. It will offer new ethnographic accounts on the cultivation of enchantment in nature-oriented experiences which can help explain the meaning and significance of moments of enchantment.
