Charlotte Johann is a historian of modern Europe working at the intersection of political, legal and intellectual history. Her research explores how visions of law impacted the theory and practice of politics in the long nineteenth century.

Her PhD, funded by the AHRC and the Cambridge Trust, has examined historical jurisprudence and its role in shaping the legal politics of early nineteenth-century Germany. During her doctorate, she also held a short-term fellowship at the Prussian State Archive in Berlin.

Before starting her PhD, she completed a bachelor’s degree in political science at the Free University in Berlin and an MPhil in Political Thought and Intellectual History at Cambridge, for which she was awarded the Quentin Skinner Prize.

Her research has recently featured in the Historical Journal and is forthcoming elsewhere. Her postdoctoral project will investigate constructions of corporate personhood and their legal impact in Britain and Germany during the age of empire.
