As Professor of Modern British History at the University of Oxford, a Fellow of Keble College, a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, and Director of the Centre for Research in Victorian Political Culture, my research explores British political culture from the 1790s to the beginning of the 20th century. In particular, I have an active research interest in public culture, political values, party politics, and constitutional conventions. My recent books include Victorian Political Culture: ‘Habits of Heart and Mind’ (Oxford, 2015) and The Forgotten Prime Minister, the 14th Earl of Derby, 2 volumes, (Oxford, 2007 and 2008).
I would be very pleased to discuss the Research Centre's interests and activities. Please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
