    These were the main messages that Swedish environmental historian Sverker Sörlin presented to his Nordic history colleagues in a speech at the Nordic History meeting in the summer of 2017. As Sörlin said at the end of his speech: “Society will be improved by the consideration, diligence and wisdom that the fields of history and humanities can deliver in our best moments. If it sounds odd, it is because we rarely talk about the potential of our profession.”

    At Baggrund, we believe that Sörlin’s message is so important that we have chosen to translate and publish an edited version in Danish. The hope is precisely that we can start a conversation about the potential of our profession in a time of enormous change.

    Designer Mathias Skafte used Akzidenz Grotesk for the cover and small print in the interior (notes, page numbers) and Haarlem (Edition Studio) for body copy.
