Andrzej Olechnowicz has research interests in the social and cultural history of nineteenth- and twentieth-century Britain. His current research lies in two areas: the evolution and character of the British monarchy since 1837, seeking to understand its popularity and influence in shaping national identity; and notions of ‘leisure’, ‘community’ and ‘mass society’ in inter-war Britain. Teaching specialisms include nineteenth-century social history, the impact of twentieth-century wars in shaping British society and social policy, and the origins of the Edwardian Liberal welfare reforms.
