Senior Member - Brian Young


I gained my first degree at Durham University and my doctorate at Jesus College, Oxford. I held a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship at Jesus College, Oxford between 1990 and 1993, and was then Lecturer and subsequently Reader in Intellectual History at the University of Sussex between 1993 and 2003, coming to Christ Church in 2003. I teach eighteenth- and nineteenth-century British history, along with papers in political thought, historiography, and a paper in Victorian intellectual history. My hobbies include music, literature and the arts.
