Professor of Intellectual History and Historical Theory, Groningen University
B. 1945. Ankersmit has made contributions to contemporary historiography, philosophy of history, and to historical method through his analysis and use of the concepts of narrative, metaphor, and representation. Ankersmit's volumes on Historical Representation (2001) and Political Representation (2002) for the Cultural Memory in the Present series for Stanford University Press are examples of his work in these areas.
Ankersmit has also applied the concept of the Effect of Reality proposed by Roland Barthes in his essays The Reality Effect (1989) and The Discourse of History (1989) to historical analysis to highlight the problems of textuality in the discipline of history.
Ankersmit is the founder of the Journal of the Philosophy of History (2007-) and member of the edito­rial board of History and Theory.
