Overview: The School seeks to appoint a Lecturer in the history of political thought, specialising in the ‘long’ twentieth century. This appointment will join the international research cluster formed by the Centre for the Study of the History of Political Thought, a cross-faculty collaborative venture based in the School of History.

The aim of the new appointment is to build on this strength by extending the cluster’s range of research and teaching. Currently, the historians of political thought in the School cover the early modern period (Bourke and Skinner), extending from the Renaissance to the eighteenth century, as well as the nineteenth century (Isabella, Stedman Jones and Varouxakis). By appointing in the twentieth century, the research cluster aims to acquire expertise in the field of political ideas since 1890.
