Publications by UCL Press

Launched in 2015, UCL Press has quickly established itself as a high-quality open access university press. So far, they have published over 140 open access books, and also publish 13 open access journals. Several members of staff from our School have published with them and you can download these publications free of charge from UCL Press’s website. An example of this is Introduction to Nordic Culture (edited by Annika Lindskog and Jakob Stougaard-Nielsen).

It is an innovative, interdisciplinary introduction to Nordic history, cultures and societies from medieval times to today. The textbook spans the whole Nordic region, covering historical periods from the Viking Age to modern society, and engages with a range of subjects: from runic inscriptions on iron rings and stone monuments, via eighteenth-century scientists, Ibsen’s dramas and turn-of-the-century travel, to twentieth-century health films and the welfare state, nature ideology, Greenlandic literature, Nordic Noir, migration, ‘new’ Scandinavians, and stereotypes of the Nordic.

Black Central Europe Project

There are over 1 million Black people in Central Europe today. Most Europeans still don’t know of the long history of the Black Diaspora in their countries. As a result, there is a general assumption that Black people are a relatively new presence on the continent and thus are historical and national outsiders. Through historical investigation, Black Central Europe challenges these assumptions.
