Jakob Gaardbo Nielsen


I am a PhD student in comparative literature at Aarhus University (Graduate School, Arts). Combining elements of literary studies and business history, my PhD thesis deals with literary representations of financial institutions and financial fraud in nineteenth-century Britain and France. In my research I analyze how dominant and marginal literary genres were used to portray, reroute, and critically question the ethics and ontology of financial institutions such as banks, stock exchanges, and joint-stock companies.
