Humboldt in Copenhagen: Discipline Formation in the Humanities at the University of Copenhagen in the Nineteenth Century

Claus Møller Jørgensen analyzes the dynamics behind the specialization that
took place in the nineteenth-century humanities at the University of Copenhagen.
The humanities liberated themselves from an inferior position to the higher
faculties by upgrading the status of classical studies and the education of secondary
school teachers at the end of the eighteenth century. While the classics held
a superior position until 1849 embodying the ideal of educational holism and
integration of disciplines, after the reform of the faculty of humanities in 1849
the attempt at integration lost its attractiveness. The disciplines evolved as specialized scholarly disciplines with research agendas, methodologies and journals
of their own. Classical philology became gradually marginalized by the national
disciplines of history and national philology.
