Bo Stråth (Curriculum Vitae) was 2007-2014 Finnish Academy Distinguished Professor  in Nordic, European and World History and Director of Research at the Department of World Cultures / Centre of Nordic Studies (CENS), University of Helsinki. 1997-2007 he was Professor of Contemporary History at the European University Institute in Florence, and 1990-1996 Professor in History at the University of Gothenburg.

Bo Stråth's research has focused on philosophy of history and political, social and economic theory of modernity, from a conceptual history perspective with special attention to questions of what keeps societies together or divides them, and how community is constructed. A special field of interest in this perspective is the history of European integration and the exploration of Europe in its global historical (19th-20th century) context through the method of  conceptual history.
