Curriculum Vitae

Frederik Forrai Ørskov is a Doctoral candidate at the Centre for Nordic Studies as part of the ReNEW (Reimagining Norden in an Evolving World) PhD programme. Here he researches various conceptualizations of Norden outside of Scandinavia in the interwar period. He is trained as a historian from the University of Southern Denmark (with a minor in Creative Writing) and Central European University, where his MA-thesis dealt with Danish promotional efforts in Nazi Germany. His latest publications include “Screening The Social Face of Denmark to the Nazis: Social policy as subdued resistance during the German occupation of Denmark” in the Scandinavian Journal of History and “Playing the game of IQ testing in England and Denmark in the 1930s–1960s—a socio-material perspective” in the Oxford Review of Education.
