Biography and/or project

I have a strong interest in historiography and thereby the history of historical theory. Furthermore, I’m interested in the intersections and mutual influences between History, Philosophy and social sciences. I’m also interested in Intellectual and Conceptual History and their theoretical implications. My dissertation analyzes the change of church concepts in German Protestantism during the 20th century. Bio: Since 2013 I’m part of the Cluster of Excellence “Religion and Politic in Premodern and Modern Cultures at the university of Münster and part of the project “New Social Movements and Religious Social Forms after Modernity: A Comparison of Germany and North America”
