Political cultures and citizenship

Our research

We define political history broadly, focusing on the construction and representation of political ideas within institutions and throughout popular culture, and the impact of those ideas on the lived experience of individuals and social groups. We research Citizenship as a historically and culturally contingent concept which defines the relationships that exist between individuals and states and between individuals themselves.
