Dr Jason Peacey
Office: 414, 26 Gordon Square
My area of interest is British history in the early modern period. I teach ‘Tudor and Stuart Britain, 1500-1700’, 'The Political City: London in the Seventeenth Century' and 'Popular Politics in Early Modern Britain', as well as an MA course entitled 'The Public Sphere in Britain, 1476-1776'. I also convene, and teach on ‘Concepts, categories and the practice of history’.
Beyond this, I serve on the editorial boards of History Compass, Media History, and Parliamentary History, for the latter of which I also serve as a book reviews editor. I am also one of the editors of a monograph series for Pickering and Chatto, entitled 'Political and Popular Culture in the Early Modern Period'.
Areas of Research Supervision: I am interested in supervising topics relating to the early modern period of British History, especially those concerning political history and political culture. I have a particular interest in parliamentary history, popular politics, print culture, and the history of communication, including the history of journalism, reading and the 'reception' of texts.
