I am a historian (PhD) with a background in English Studies and Journalism.

Academic interests

My research interests are located at the intersection of modern social and technological history, historiography and theory of history, and secularity studies and political theology. As a historian of modernity, I am interested in the material technological/performative mediation of "modern" concepts of temporality, autonomy, and immanence.

My PhD thesis (entitled ‘Time Machines’, June 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 their technological performance – railways and national clock synchronization; newspapers and the public sphere; and bank notes and the economy.

I have taught modules in the theory of history, religious studies, culture and communication, worldview pluralism, and philosophy of science. I have lectured on rhetoric, nineteenth-century British history, and theories of secularity and secularisation.

Projects

I work as a researcher on the project "Cultural Conflict 2.0" which is headed by Professor David Herbert. The project investigates the development of cultural conflicts, as well as production and reproduction of social order, via social media, collective rituals, city promotion and planning, etc. in different cities in Denmark, Norway and the Netherlands.
