I am very excited to be joining the History Department at Berkeley, under the supervision of Professor Vernon. Through convocation and colloquia, I’m looking forward to situating the subject of my thesis within the broader historiographical themes of post-war Britain—particularly consensus, crisis and decline—and asking how this might fit with the daunting question of neoliberalism.
