Christina Lupton (University of Denmark) and I were awarded a grant by the Carlsberg Foundation for a joint project on reading habits during COVID-19 'lockdown' 2020.

The funding will cover a 2-year postdoctoral position in Copenhagen, a major conference in 2021, and research assistance.

I shall use my part of the funding to carry out empirical research in Copenhagen.
