Presentation

Christoph Houman Ellersgaard is an assistant professor at the Department of Business and Politics partly funded by a grant from the Danish Council for Independent Research. The project ‘Tied up? Exploring elite cohesion in the intersection of networks and careers’ explores the careers and network of the core of the Danish Elite Network. With a background in sociology his research aims at mapping Danish elites through a variety of methods and data sources. His work on Danish elites with Anton Grau Larsen has received wide public interest and he has given numerous public talks to a wide array of audiences – ranging from political parties, social movements, organisations, corporations or just public events – about the Danish power elite, as he chose to describe the 423 people in the core of the Danish network.
