Stefan Fisher-Høyrem

Biography and/or project

My research interests are located at the intersection of postsecular philosophies, political religion/theology, and the ‘material turn’ in the history of ideas, technology and historiography. My PhD thesis (entitled ‘Time Machines’, completed at Oxford Brookes University 2012) aimed to recast the question of secularization in Victorian England through critically drawing on the work of Charles Taylor in combination with the philosophy of Bruno Latour, and locating the ‘secular’ in the temporal dimension of particular social imaginaries and the technologies through which these were performed. I coninue to work on modernity and temporality.
