Stefan Jonsson’s research is multidisciplinary with a base in critical cultural theory and aiming toward an understanding of the social and historical formation of collective identities. Originally a scholar and critic of literature, aesthetics, and intellectual history, Stefan has increasingly focused on the social and historical processes through which identities are constituted and transformed in the crossroad between the psychic and the political or the social. Ongoing projects include ‘How Art and Literature Help Us Understand Democracy”, (VR 2018–) and ‘Monstrous Events: Aesthetic Dimensions of Collective Political Protest, 2011 and after”, (RJ 2018–).
