Martin Petzke’s research investigates the ways in which social-scientific expertise, statistics, and numerical indicators shape, intervene in, and transform fields of specialized practice. His work is focusing on

  • the role of religious statistics in the emergence and perpetuation of global evangelical missions since the nineteenth century and how such quantitative perspectives have had an impact on other religions encountered in the mission field;
  • the political measurement of immigrant integration and its effects on integration offices in German bureaucracies;
  • the activities of the Verein für Sozialpolitik and missionaries in both the metropole and the colonies of the German Empire and how these activities shaped the construction of the worker question and the "Kulturkampf" as two foundational debates in the formation of the German nation state.
