This website hosts the center of research and study for Hans Christian Andersen (HCA). So you may find biographies, papers, poems, letters relevant to this worldly acknowledged author, who wrote for children and adults.

about HCA studies:

The contributions from the international HCA conferences are articles of high quality. They are valuable for HCA research and studies and is still often requested - but can be difficult to obtain. Therefore, we have published the speeches from the first two of the preliminary three international HCA conferences, Andersen and the World and A Poet in Time ."
