About me

Andreas Rose (b. 1976) was Assistant Professor of Modern History at Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn (2010-2016) and is currently Konrad Adenauer Research Scholar. After receiving his Master of Arts in Imperial and Commonwealth History at King’s College London (2000) he received his M.Phil in History, Political Sciences and Economics at Potsdam University (2002). He was Visiting Research Student at Lady Margaret Hall Oxford and Student Assistant of Hew Strachan at All Souls College Oxford(2003/4), Research Scholar at the German Historical Institute London (2004) and received his PhD (summa cum laude) from the University of Augsburg (2008). In 2009 he was Post-Doc at the University of Berne and worked shortly at the Bismarck Foundation in Friedrichsruh (2010).

His main areas of research are in European political, cultural and military history of the 19th and 20th century, especially in the history of international relations, intellectual history and the interrelationship between the media, the public and politics. His current projects comprise an intellectual and transnational study of the Free Trade (1780–1880) and (with Dominik Geppert) an Edition of the Hans Delbrueck Papers (1868–1929). For Habilitation he is working on a major study about Neo-Conservatism, Neo Liberalism and the Politics of Privatization in Germany from the 1920s to the 1990s.
