Dr Peter Schröder


Peter Schröder joined UCL in 2001 and holds a joint appointment with ESPS. He is an intellectual historian and is mainly interested in the history of political thought. He has published widely on the early modern period, although he does occasionally venture beyond these chronological bounds, which is reflected in some of his publications as well as his teaching. He has been visiting professor at universities in Paris, Rome, and Seoul, and visiting research fellow at the Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium, the Institute for Advanced Studies at the Central European University in Budapest, and the Max Weber Centre for Advanced Cultural and Social Studies at the University of Erfurt (amongst others).
