Det Kongelige Bibliotek

Det Kongelige Bibliotek invites students and staff from Danish universities to join staff from the Royal Danish Library to look into the historical Danish newspapers between 1830-1970, and examine the kind of language writers have used to express a political opinion that might be qualified as belonging to certain political currents. We will trave the political opinion by applying digital methods to the extensive newspaper collection at the Royal Danish Library.
