Bodie A. Ashton

Visiting research fellow, University of Adelaide

I am a visiting research fellow at The University of Adelaide, South Australia, as well as a research historian in the Faculty of Law at the Universität Passau, Germany. My field of expertise is German and European history of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and particular the political, social, constitutional, and diplomatic aspects of these eras. I hold a Ph.D. in History from The University of Adelaide, and have previously worked as a historical consultant on both private and government projects. I am the author of "The Kingdom of Württemberg and the Making of Germany, 1815-1871" (London: Bloomsbury, 2017), and a frequent contributor to academic conferences.
