Our Centre's activities include the organisation of an annual Centre for Political Thought research seminar, annual Alan Milne and Henry Tudor Memorial addresses, an annual research away day, running a reading group and periodic conferences.
We welcomed our first Junior Research Fellow, Dr. Georgios Giannakopoulis, in June 2018. Georgios worked on the project ‘Weather Men: British Intellectuals, National Questions and Imperial Order in Europe in the age of Nationalism and Internationalism’ under Julia Stapleton’s mentorship. He organised the conference ‘Britain as the European home of modern liberty?’ that has taken place in September 2019.
Our Centre was founded by Dr Robert Dyson in 1997 as a Centre for the History of Political Thought. In 2016, we changed our name to Centre for Political Thought in order to increase the remit of research we aim to support.
