Professor at Syddansk University in Odense
You will find a far more detailed presentation of my research and my publications on my home page:
I am educated in comparative religion at the University of Lund where I defended my thesis: Claiming Knowledge: Strategies of Epistemology from Theosophy to the New Age in the year 2000, a thesis that examines a number of historically related new religious movements’ rhetorical strategies of legitimization. Soon thereafter I got a readership at the University of Amsterdam and since 2005 I work as a professor at Syddansk University in Odense.
I have written three books in Swedish: På spaning efter helheten (1997; 2004), Profeter mot strömmen (1999) and Osunt förnuft (2002). Among other titles, my thesis is also published in English in a slightly revised form (but with the same title). Another book is published at Cambridge University Press, Alternative Christs (2009).
