Présentation de son intervention :


Understanding surveillance in a long-term perspective – the case of Scandinavia around 1914

 Surveillance studies is an emerging field of academic research that has generated new perspectives and questions to the study of the past. In this lecture, I aim to explore the historical connections between modern telecommunications and the development of practices for state surveillance. My focus is on Denmark and wider Scandinavia during World War One: a period that witnessed an enormous increase in Scandinavian telecommunications traffic, but also the implementation of new administrative routines and technologies for secret monitoring and censorship. I shall argue that WW1 was a “game changer” in the process, at least from a Scandinavian point of view. However, I will also stress that the history of surveillance has dimensions that must be understood in the longue durée, as they point back to pre-modern conceptions of (absolute) state power, including a deep-seated distrust against secrecy in private forms of communication.
