Christopher Fevre

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in History, University of the Free State

Dr Christopher Fevre is a historian of twentieth-century Britain with a specific interest in issues of race and racism, the development of community/political activism, and the intersection between race and the criminal justice system. He is also interested in the history of modern South Africa, particularly during the era of apartheid from 1948 to 1994.

In January 2019, Christopher received his PhD from the University of Dundee for a project entitled “Injustice on Their Backs and Justice on Their Minds”: Political Activism and the Policing of London’s Afro-Caribbean Community, 1945-1993. He is currently working on converting his PhD thesis into a published monograph, whilst also beginning a new research project exploring the links between Scotland and South Africa during the second half of the twentieth century and specifically, assessing Scots’ contribution to the international struggle against apartheid.
