It is rather extraordinary that the Danish folk high school can celebrate its 175 th anniversary, for there is such a world of difference between 1844 and 2019. In A Foray into Folk High School Ideology , Ove Korsgaard traces Grundtvig’s original thinking from 1844 until the present day.

Ove Korsgaard takes three dates – 1864, 1940 and 1968 – each of which heralded a now form of revival, which folk high schools have both been affected by and contributed to. And he asks whether today there is a new revival underway.
