“The Atlantic is an American magazine covering areas such as politics, science, economy and culture. It is a high-quality magazine, and the readership is well-educated - and extensive! It’s a great honour to be included in this magazine, and I am really happy with the nice mention,” says Anna Vedel.

The study forms part of Anna Vedel’s PhD project, which also comprises a study of the personalities of students at Aarhus University.
