Andrés María Vicent holds a doctorate in Modern History from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. His research focuses on Legitimism as a transnational political culture. In a broader sense, he is interested in the global history of the Age of Revolutions, the making of Western political cultures, the cultural history of capitalism and the study of the Iberian world (politics, international relations, constitutional change and finances) in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, as a post-imperial period.
As a Max Weber Fellow, his research aims at developing his study of the legitimist world, focusing on its relationship with romanticism and capitalism. He also intends to complete the edition of a transnational history of early Carlism based on his doctoral dissertation.
In the course of his doctoral training, Andrés enjoyed three funded academic stays at the EHSS, the Università La Sapienza and the Universität Wien. He spent the final year of his bachelor degree, as an Erasmus student, at the Université de Genève. He has participated in several research projects regarding the imaginaries of State, the nineteenth-century monarchy and the cultural history of credit.
