Herregård og herskab
Distinktioner og iscenesættelser på Nørre Vosborg og Hvedholm 1850-1920

The book explores self-presentation and self-perception among Danish estate owner families in the period 1850-1920. It studies communication and manifestation of different kinds of social status and cultural characteristics that made estate owner families stand out as a distinctive group. Two Danish estates and their master families form the main cases and provide the majority of the examples used in the thesis.
A rich source material and the book’s many illustrations present the reader to life in the Danish country house at the time.
