Chris Brooke
Between 2000 and 2009 I worked in Oxford, first as a Tutorial Fellow at Magdalen College, later as the Isaiah Berlin Research Fellow in Political Theory in the Department of Politics and International Relations and at Balliol College. From 2009 until 2012 I was Lecturer in Political Theory / History of Political Thought in the Department of Politics and International Studies (POLIS) at Cambridge, where I was also Fellow in Politics at King's College. I came to Bristol in 2012.
Research

My work concentrates on themes in the history of modern political thought.

I've recently published a book, Philosophic Pride: Stoicism and Political Thought from Lipsius to Rousseau (Princeton University Press, 2012), and an edited collection (along with Elizabeth Frazer), Philosophical and Political Perspectives on Education (Routledge, 2013); and I'm currently working on a book on the history of distributive justice theory since the eighteenth century, Who Gets What? Distributive Justice from Rousseau to Rawls.

Future projects will probably focus on Jean-Jacques Rousseau, the political thought of the first half of the nineteenth century, and the debate about European confederation from the Treaty of Utrecht to the Treaty of Rome.
