Rasmus Rask Poulsen (DEN)


Rasmus Rask Poulsen is a PhD fellow at the section for European Ethnology at the SAXO-Institute at the University of Copenhagen and the Danish Folklore Archives at the Royal Danish Library. His PhD project examines the (world) heritagization of three affiliated religious communities, the Moravian Brethren (Herrnhuter) and their 18th century settlements in Denmark, Germany, and the US. From 2018 to 2019, he worked as a research assistant with the HERILIGION project at the Department of Anthropology at the University of Copenhagen, where he conducted qualitative research and co-authored a series of papers on heritagization of religion in Denmark. In 2017, he attained an MA in Social Anthropology from the Department of Anthropology at the University of Copenhagen specializing in the fields of cultural heritage and religion.

As part of the HERILIGION project Rasmus was interested in how the heritagization of religious heritage sites in Denmark implicated local use, knowledge production and management of the sites as places of religious worship and heritage reverence.”
