About Andreas Önnerfors

The focus of my research within the History of Sciences and Ideas lies on transfer of cultures and cultural practices predominantly in European space, crossing cultural, linguistic and political boundaries between 1648-1848 (approximately between the Peace of Westphalia and the national revolutions in Europe). I am particularly interested in approaches developed by trans-national and global history.

During my research at PhD level I realized that organized social life had been overlooked as an approach towards a deeper understanding of processes of cultural transfer in early modern Europe. This applied especially to my research into Swedish-German cultural encounters during the eighteenth century. The main agents or cultural ‘carrier-groups’ in these processes, were translators, publishers, academics and merchants. In short: members of the ‘functional elites’ were engaged in a wide number of societies, academies and orders, the least researched of which was freemasonry, but also other related fraternal orders. Hence, I devoted a substantial part of my post-doctoral research to ground research in the area and have published extensively on various aspects of fraternal organizations ranging from military to gender history.
