The Swan’s Egg

A Student Journal of Hans Christian Andersen Studies

Founded in 2020, The Swan’s Egg is a publication of the Hans Christian Andersen Centre at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense. As suggested by our title, we strive to create a virtual environment in which students of Andersen at any level of study (BA, MA, or PhD) can share their work on the author as it develops.

Call for Papers

Editorial Team
