Professor Stephen Conway

Head of Department


Stephen Conway is currently Head of History at UCL. His main research interest is eighteenth-century Britain and Ireland, and particularly their place in the wider world. Stephen has published books on war, the state and society in Britain, Ireland and North America and on Britain and Ireland's relationship with continental Europe. He is now working on a project on the continental European contribution to Britain's empire in the eighteenth century, and European imperial collaboration in the same period.

Stephen teaches general courses on British History, and Colonial and Revolutionary North America. His document-based special subject focuses on the relationship between Britain and its North American colonies between 1760 and 1776 - the opening part of the American Revolution.

Areas of Research Supervision: Eighteenth-Century British, Irish, American, Atlantic, military and international history.
