Jack David Sargeant
Jack's research focuses on popular engagement in the English Revolution of the 1640s, and more specifically on the urban spaces in which people outside of London encountered and influenced the Revolution's 'formal' politics. He has a broader interest in the practical application of continental philosophy, and his project draws upon concepts emerging out of what Nikolas Kompridis has termed the 'aesthetic turn' in political thought to explore the sensory characteristics of political confrontation in seventeenth-century England.
