About Anton Jansson

I have a PhD in History of ideas and Science since January 2017. My dissertation, titled Revolution and Revelation: Theology in the Political Thought of Friedrich Julius Stahl, Wilhelm Weitling and Karl Theodor Welcker, dealt with the intersection of political thought and theology during the German Vormärz period, the decades before 1848. From a reading of the works of three central thinkers, I show how deeply entangled Christian theology was with the modern political ideologies in their formative period during this time.

Since defending my thesis, I have been teaching History of ideas and science at the University of Gothenburg. I have mainly taught History of ideas on an undergraduate level, but I have also been involved in the interdisciplinary Bachelor's Programme of European Studies and the Teacher Education Programme.

At the moment I am performing two smaller projects on the history of atheism in Sweden: one conceptual history study, as well as one study on the local history of atheism in Gothenburg, financed by the Anna Ahrenberg foundation.

During the winter semester 2013/14 I was a visiting PhD student at the Ruhr University in Bochum, at the chair for modern history and theory of history. I have also attended and presented papers at several international conferences and workshops. I am director of The International Society for Historians of Atheism, Secularism, and Humanism (ISHASH), board member of Concepta, a research network of conceptual history and political thought, and member of other international research networks. I am also a part of CERGU, an interdisciplinary network for European research at the University of Gothenburg.

My fields of interest include German intellectual history, religion and secularization, the history of political thought, and the history of atheist and secularist ideas. I am also interested in the history of Europe, and ideas about Europe.
