Jørgen Bruhn (1968) has done research on Marcel Proust, M.M. Bakhtin, medieval French literature (Chrétien de Troyes), literary theory and history of the novel. Bruhn's earlier books include Proust. En Introduktion til På sporet efter den tabte tid (1998), M.M. Bakhtin - Romanens tænker (1998) Lovely Violence. The Critical Romances of Chrétien de Troyes (2010), and (with Anne Gjelsvik and Eirik Frisvold Hanssen as co-editors) Adaptation Studies. New Approaches, New Challenges (Bloomsbury 2013).

For several years now, Bruhn's work has focused on questions of intermediality and interart and he has published several articles and edited volumes in Swedish, Danish and English on intermedial questions. His work has been translated into Portuguese and Chinese.

His book Intermediality and Narrative Literature: Medialities Matter, which includes case studies of Nabokov, Carver, Tobias Wolff and Jennifer Egan, was published in 2016 and he co-edited a Danish volume Litteratur mellem Medier [Literature between Media] in 2017 (with Tore Rye Andersen et al (ed) and, co-written with Anne Gjelsvik, the monograph, Cinema between Media. An Intermediality Approach (2018).

Bruhn co-edited with Beate Schirrmacher  Intermedial Studies. An Introduction to Meaning across Media (2022). With Ida Bencke he co-edited Multispecies Storytelling in Intermedial Practices (2022) and Bruhn, Camilla Brudin Borg and Rikard Wingård gave out the Swedish anthology Ekokritiska metoder (2022) - the ecocritical volume will be edited and translated into English in 2024.

He is currently leading the Linnæus University Center for Intermedial and Multimodal Studies in Växjö and he has in recent years been intensely occupied with the pathways between intermedial studies and contemporary ecocriticism, including the notion of the Anthropocene. With colleagues from the Ims-reseach cluster he is trying to establish a methodological and theoretical approach, Intermedial Ecocriticism, which will enable researchers to describe, analyse, and compare media products across media types, including scientific articles, feature and documentary film, literature, popular science communication and of course literature and the arts.

Bruhn's most recent publications are Intermedial Ecocriticism. The Climate Crisis in Arts and Media (monograph co-written with Niklas Salmose, 2023), and Palgrave Handbook in Intermediality (2024 - co-edited with Vieira and Lopez-Varela, 2024).
