HERE AND NOW! HISTORICISM AND AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE PAST IN ART, CULTURE AND SCIENCE TODAY

The Danish Institute in Rome was established by the Carlsberg Foundation and over the years has provided the setting for fruitful interdisciplinary studies, bringing together scholarship holders with all manner of projects in the arts and sciences, with Rome or matters Italian as the focal point.

In continuation of this strong tradition, the Carlsberg Foundation is organising a conference at the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters in Copenhagen. The conference pays tribute to the Brewer’s fascination with history by focusing on the present significance of the past. The conference addresses a number of the fields where history is integrated in contemporary culture and science, with a discussion of the necessity of history today. The programme will conclude on Saturday 3 September with a visit to the Museum of National History at Frederiksborg Castle.
