Geraint Thomas
Lecturer in Modern History



Geraint Thomas is a Lecturer in Modern British History. He specialises in popular politics in the twentieth century. His first book explores the political culture of the interwar years and offers the first detailed study of popular Conservatism under the cross-party National Government of the 1930s.

His current project investigates the social experience of democracy since 1918 and as such seeks to contribute to methodological debates about the direction of political history. He also maintains an active research interest in Celtic history, looking in particular at how Celtic societies negotiated their place within a dominant Anglo world. His teaching interests span the political, social and cultural history of nineteenth- and twentieth-century Britain.

Born and raised in Pembrokeshire, he studied at the LSE and the University of Cambridge. He joined the department at York in 2015 having taught at the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge.
