Robert W. Rix (Dr Phil., PhD.) is associate professor at the University of Copenhagen. I have published widely in several areas relating to the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries: politics, religion, language, nationalism, Nordic antiquarianism, and print culture/book history. I have written a number of articles on William Blake, the focus of which has been the milieus of radicals, revolutionaries and religious enthusiasts who populated London in the 1790s. A theme I have also pursued is the dissemination of Swedenborgianism in an international perspective. I have published the monographs William Blake and the Cultures of Radical Christianity (2007) and The Barbarian North in Medieval Imagination: Ethnicity, Legend, and Literature (Routledge 2014), as well as edited several collections of articles.
I am editor of the journal Romantik: Journal for the Study of Romanticisms.
I was Deputy Head of Department 2014-2018.
