Konzept und Organisation: Jean-François Berdah,
External Senior Fellow
The workshop will question whether the Enlightenment has influenced the Scandinavian thinking during the 18th century, and if it produced some effect on the social, political and economical practices. Furthermore, the impact of the French Revolution will be measured as an extension of the French Enlightenment. In this context, it will be discussed, under what conditions the singular career of Jean-Baptiste Bernadotte as a Swedish King of French origin has shaped the destiny of Scandinavia, more specifically Sweden and Norway, in the early 19th century.
