Anders Berg-Sørensen is Associate Professor in Political Theory with an interest in intellectual history, ideology studies and the history of political thought.

He is doing research on the contestation of the religion-politics relationship in European public discourse and political thinking historically and actually. The focus has been on the political doctrine of secularism regulating the religion-politics relationship, the formation of secularism in early modern political thought and the transformation of secularism in contemporary political theory. He is claiming a shift from a critique of secularism to a critical secularism.

Currently, he is carrying out research on the political role of Christianity in Europe and the invocation of Christianity as crucial for European civlization in general and more specifically for national identities and values considered threatened by globalization and immigration. This research on the transnational phenomenon of Christian nationalism engages literature on political theology, liberal nationalism, democratic theory and political myths in the history of political thought.
