Dr. Tobias Cremer
Junior Research Fellow in Religion and the Frontier Challenges at Pembroke College Oxford
Tobias Cremer is a Junior Research Fellow in Religion and the Frontier Challenges at Pembroke College Oxford and a stipendiary lecturer in Politics at Wadham College Oxford. His research focuses on the relationship between religion, secularization and the rise of right-wing identity politics throughout western societies. In his doctoral research (University of Cambridge, funded by the ESRC), Tobias explored how right-wing populist movements in Germany, France, and the United States employ Christianity as a cultural identity marker and how believers and church authorities are reacting to such references.
Tobias holds a Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge, an MPP from the Harvard Kennedy School, where he was a McCloy Fellow, an MPhil in Politics and International Studies from Cambridge University, and a BA in Politics, Philosophy and Economics from Sciences Po Paris. Across his career, he has worked in the German Parliament, the German Federal Foreign Office, and in management consulting.
