Jørgen Bruhn 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 Lovely Violence. The Critical Romances of Chrétien de Troyes (Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 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 both Swedish, Danish and English on intermedial questions.

More recently, his book Intermediality and Narrative Literature: Medialities Matter, which includes case studies of Nabokov, Carver, Tobias Wolff and Jennifer Egan, was published in Palgrave MacMillan's Pivot series in 2016. Bruhn’s latest books is the co-edited volume Litteratur mellem Medier [Literature between Media] (Tore Rye Andersen et al (ed) Aarhus Universitetsforlag 2017).

His latest book is the monography, written with Anne Gjelsvik, Cinema between Media. An Intermediality Approach (Edinburgh UP, 2018).

Currently, Bruhn is 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.
