During the fall semester, ICOG welcomes new visiting research fellows. In October, we welcome Arne Solli, a historian from the University of Bergen. As a member of the research project Sound Toll Registers Online, Dr Solli will be working closely with Dr Anjana Singh.
Arne Solli currently works at the Department of Archaeology, History, Culture studies and Religion (AHKR), University of Bergen. Arne does research in Early Modern history in the fields Historical Demography, Social history, Economic history and Urban History. He has 10 years experience in teaching and supervision on Early Modern History (1500-1850). He is part of the Norwegian project Historic Population Register 1800-1950 with responsibility to geocode the urban population of Norway (1865-1920).
Arne Solli works on the Sound Toll Registers Online data with a focus on the trade of fish in the Baltic, especially on the Dutch re-export on fish products from Iceland, Denmark, and Norway. His second focus is on the harsh (and sometimes cruel) Danish debate on the "historical value" and the reliability of the Sound Toll Registers. The Danish debate of the interwar period is not well known outside Denmark because it is published in Danish (and German).
ICOG welcomes applications for visiting research fellowships from academics working in the fields of its five research centres. The duration of visits usually varies from a month to half a year. During this time, visiting research fellows are expected to work on their own research projects (ideally in collaboration with a scholar or an academic team from ICOG) and to participate in the events organised by ICOG.
