This is my professional website. I started it as a master’s student writing my dissertation on cosmopolitanism. Since then I wrote a Ph.D. thesis on Anacharsis Cloots, whom I identified as a figure of ‘cosmopolitan republicanism’. The monograph based on my thesis will be published in 2023 by De Gruyter and won the 10th anniversary open access competition.
Since 1 September 2019, I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Privacy Studies, University of Copenhagen. My research focuses primarily on 17th-century Helmstedt with Hermann Conring‘s private teaching of legal and political thought, and Chatsworth and Hardwick with Thomas Hobbes’s activities.
My research interests lie within intellectual history, legal history, and the history of knowledge. I am interested in private libraries and the ordering of knowledge, its actors, and the circulation of ideas. I am also interested in the teaching of legal history and how the discipline emerged and evolved at European universities.
