Richard Butterwick-Pawlikowski

Professor Richard Butterwick-Pawlikowski studied History at Queen's College, Cambridge.

His initial research on the Anglophilia of the last King of Poland. He subsequently spent several years in Poland, first as a Polish Government scholar and later as a visiting lecturer at Łódź University.

In 1994 he was awarded a DPhil in Modern History from Oxford University for his thesis 'Stanisław August Poniatowski, his Circle and English Political Culture'.

He moved to London to become Lecturer in Polish History at SSEES in January 2005, but spend as much time as possible in the former Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. His research and teaching transgresses into topics and themes in the history of literature and the history of art and architecture in the Enlightenment period in Poland-Lithuania.

For him, the greatest pleasure to be had from history is to make an unsuspected discovery in an archive.
