Estrup, Jacob Brønnum Scavenius


Born Apr. 16, 1825, in Sorø; died Dec. 24, 1913, near Kongsdal. Danish state and political figure.

A prominent landowner, Estrup was a member of the Folketing, the lower chamber of the Rigsdag, in 1854 and 1855. In 1864 he entered the Landsting, the upper chamber, where he served, with one hiatus, for a long period. He was minister of the interior from 1865 to 1869 and held the posts of prime minister and minister of finance from 1875 to 1894.

Estrup, who was the leader of the rightist, conservative Højre Party, was nicknamed the Danish Bismarck. While he was prime minister, bitter clashes took place between his party and the opposition party, Venstre. His government’s budgets were repeatedly rejected by Venstre. In response, Estrup resorted to provisional financial laws that did not require formal confirmation by the Rigsdag; the first law was introduced in 1877. This policy resulted in increases in taxes and, during the 1880’s and 1890’s, led to a worsening of the political situation and to unrest among the peasants. A compromise between the moderate wing of his party and the right wing of Venstre resulted in Estrup’s resignation.

Sarah Harlan-Haughey, Taylor Cunningham, Katherine Lees, and Andrew Estrup describe the benefits and challenges of blogging as an integral part of an honors course in "Blogging to Develop Honors Students' Writing." The benefits include peer interaction, collaboration, inherent student interest, a "launching pad for bigger projects," and "a means for amplifying, developing, and complicating in-class conversation." The challenge is motivating students to be conscientious, substantive, and reflective in their blog posts, so the authors provide pedagogical advice about how to accomplish these goals.
Designer Niels Peter Estrup says: "Our baby bath tub took up far too much space in our small bathroom and so I embarked on a journey to replace the dated baby bath tub with a modern flat-folding bath tub."

However, although many articles and books deal with Gestalt groups (Feder & Ronall, 1980; Huckabay, 1992), and a few journal articles deal with Gestalt supervision (Resnick & Estrup, 2000; Yontef, 1997), we were unable to locate literature on Gestalt group supervision.

While many students like the relaxed, discussion-oriented atmosphere that Honors provides them and feel that many of the texts are interesting, they feel dissatisfied with their exploration of the texts--they want more from them, but don't know where to find what they're looking for (Each quotation in this section was generated by the three-person undergraduate team of Cunningham, Estrup, and Lees in a collaborative document and will be referred to as "Undergraduate Team").
