Andreas Møller Mulvad

Assistant Professor, PhD 

Phone: (+45)38153539


Andreas Møller Mulvad (b. 1983) holds master’s degrees in Sociology (Copenhagen) and Human Geography (Bristol), as well as PhD in Political Science (Copenhagen)
His research combines historical sociology, international political economy and intellectual history. The foundational project is to explore the widely differing historical development of capitalist modernity in different countries, especially China and Scandinavia. He has published on ideology and political economy in contemporary China and on the relational sociology of Norbert Elias.
His CISTAS project develops a republican reinterpretation of Civil Society as a concept that already mattered prior to capitalist modernity and the consolidation of the liberal state, and which also points beyond it. Projected outcomes: a) a comparative index of civil society – defined in the republican sense – across states; b) a comparative excavation of radical republican visions of civil(ised) society in Scandinavian popular movements between 1840 and 1940.
