Uffa Jensen has been conducting research on anti-Semitism for many years. Most notably, his book Gebildete Doppelgänger (2005) has explored new avenues in the investigation of anti-Semitic stereotypes in the educated middle classes. In addition, his research project on transnational psychoanalysis in Berlin, London and Calcutta has contributed important findings to the fields of Postcolonial Theory, Transnational Historiography and History of Science. His long-standing work at the department of History of Emotions at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin has been the basis of various pertinent publications in the field of History of Emotions.

Funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), Jensen has taken up a Heisenberg Professorship at the Center for Research on Anti-Semitism  with the winter term 2017/18.
