About Anton Jansson

I have a PhD in History of Ideas and Science since 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.

After defending my thesis, I taught History of Ideas and Science, and performed a couple of smaller research projects dedicated to the history of atheism. These were funded primarily by the Anna Ahrenberg foundation and the Johan & Jakob Söderberg foundation.

During 2019-2020, I am primarily active as a postdoctoral researcher at Lund University, where I am part of a project researching the history of the humanities in postwar Sweden. In 2021, I return to the University of Gothenburg, where I will pursue a larger project on the history of atheism in Sweden: “Visions of a Society without God: The History of Atheism in Sweden 1879-1968”.

During the winter semester of 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 the conceptual-historical research network Concepta, and the Swedish network for the history of political thought (Nätverket för politisk idéhistoria).

My fields of interest are primarily the history of political thought, religion and secularization, and the history of atheist and secularist ideas. I am also interested in the history of the humanities, and the intellectual history of Europe.
