They seek her here, they seek her there

Those female bureaucrats of the Faculty of Humanities, University of Copenhagen, seek her everywhere: Hannah Krogh Hansen, Kirsten Stenbjerre, Dorrit Wivel, Hanne Møller



Do these women know what 'research' is?

Where is she? Is she at South Campus? Is she at the Royal Library?

Or is she at home? That demmed elusive female student/ candidate/ PhD fellow/ Dr.phil. in spe. She meddles with research at our Faculty; popping in and out each week - yes, almost every day ...

Where is she? That demmed elusive female student/ candidate/ PhD fellow/ Dr.phil. in spe ...





So, what did she do in the 1990's, at the University of Copenhagen, that demmed elusive female student? This is for everyone to know:

ce fut un crime passionnel: il était une valve de vélo sur le vélo du professeur, une soupape de bicyclette (1994). Mea culpa, maxima culpa, the student cried. I was out of my mind. I missed him so much and still do. I have always done so – for 25 years today. Sten Ebbesen was my family. The student was discarded at the University of Copenhagen, when the professor broke the engagement (1991). The student was discarded by the University of Copenhagen, when the professor wrote for it and was copy-pasted by Dorrit Wivel (1999)






“Books? Why do you need access to books? You are an MA” (Margit Laurberg). Simply stay home in bed, with all your interference.

“I am an MA, yes in 1994, but I just began my life in research: konferensen, my PhD - a PhD student (with an Ubbo Emmius fellowship in Nederland 1999 to 2001 and many more fellowships). I need access to books and microfilms.

I need to work, I need to work, to work, to work, to work. I need to work, I need to work, to work, to work, to work - every day. I need access to books, periodicals and microfilms - every day in my everyday life 24/7 - every day”




Education is so important, it is important to me. Studying IS my life.

I need to work, to work, to work. I need to work - every day. You don't take the hammer from a blacksmith; you don't take the exams from a student; you don't take the books and microfilm from a researcher. But Sten Ebbesen did in 1993 (1994-1999), the University of Copenhagen did in 1999 - until (2004) 2011 (the Parliamentary Ombudsman in Denmark), 2015 (Hanne Møller made my 2004-librarypermission function!)




1994 to 2017

Twenty-three years it took the Faculty of Humanities - 1994 (1999, 2004, 2011) to 2017 - to establish a semi-functioning restricted access to our

SAXO Library, Greek and Latin. Professor Sten Ebbesen remains refusing me access to microfilms (Hanne Møller, 2015)

The Bureaucracy of the University of Copenhagen involved the following persons (documentation by personal signature, official letters and/or e-mail):


David Bloch, Ivan Boserup (The Royal Library), Karsten Christensen, Tine Damsholt, Karl-Erik Frandsen, †Karsten Friis-Jensen, Hans Gammeltoft-Hansen, Ulf Hedetoft, Ralf Hemmingsen, Anders Holm Rasmussen, Carsten Jahnke, Ulla Kjær (Uddannelsesstyrelsen), John Kuhlmann Madsen, Karl Christian Lammers, Margit Laurberg, Rauf Malik (Universitetsstyrelsen), †Jørgen Mejer, Hans Mikkelsen (Copenhagen University Library: A Division of the Royal Library), Hanne Møller, Kjeld Møllgård, Linda Nielsen, Lauge Olaf Nielsen, Kirsten Refsing, Inga Roepstorff, †Jørgen Raasted, †Fritz Saaby Pedersen, Kirsten Stenbjerre, Jørgen Steen Sørensen, Mette Thunø, Dorrit Wivel; more persons of the Danish Ministries and of the Parliamentary Ombudsmand (Mette Kildegaard Hansen 2017); more librarians of the Royal Library of Copenhagen (Interlibrary Loans); more female office clerks of the Faculty of Humanities; several guest researchers (Russell Friedman, with documentation) and more unknown students of our Institute of Greek and Latin, were involved by Hannah Krogh Hansen, the non-academic Department secretary in the Academic Council with John Kuhlmann Madsen, the Dean, and Kirsten Stenbjerre, Head of Secretariat: "There are five hens ..." now ran the tale (Hannah Krogh Hansen). Christina Thomsen Thörnqvist (Gothenburg), Heine Hansen and Jakob Leth Fink are involved today (60-70 persons were directly involved)




An engagement (14-3-1991) is a happy private matter, the catholic student thought - but NO, it is not - at the University of Copenhagen, Faculty of Humanities, if the couple is a professor and an undergraduate student

(the professors' initiative 15-12-1989, spontaneously and unsolicited)




Hannah Krogh Hansen (the Department secretary, Greek & Latin, being obsessed with status at the University of Copenhagen, Sten Ebbesen was her possession), Kirsten Stenbjerre (the over-killer), Dorrit Wivel (P&J, the copy-paster mentioning no source and copy-pasting Sten Ebbesen 1999), Hanne Møller (doing her job pro et con)
