Hi! I’m Thomas Erslev, an historian of science and medicine. On this page is my contact info and a few words about who I am. In the menu above are links to my academic CV, my list of publications, and my poems.

Currently I am pursuing a doctoral degree at Aarhus University with a project on the recent history of brain banking and bioethics in a Danish context. My thesis is to be submitted November 2019. I am on the editorial board of Slagmark, the Danish journal for the history of ideas and science. I would love to hear from you regarding possible collaborations in the histories of medical science and technology, of bioethics, historical epistemology, and STS. I give public talks in Danish and English about collecting and archiving the body, as well as the ethical controversies attendant on such practices. I love writing popular texts (like Baggrunds Kabinet), and haiku/senryu poems. The first I find is a good way to process new knowledge and convince myself that I am making progress. The latter is a hobby to relax my mind and allow myself to think of things not related to my research.
