Professor 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 (Ankersmit 2001) and Political Representation (Ankersmit 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 and The Discourse of History to historical analysis to highlight the problems of textuality in the discipline of history (Ankersmit 1989).
In 1986 Ankersmit was elected member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences.
