This book is the first book in an 11 book set titled 10 Lessons from the Folk High School and serves as the introduction to the series and to folk high schools around the world.
It is rather extraordinary that the Danish folk high school can celebrate its 175th 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.
