Professor of Political History, University of Nottingham

I work (research, teach, blather for money) on British politics and political history and have written extensively on the subject, from Irish Catholic working-class culture to New Labour. My next book, A State of Play (Bloomsbury, 2014), is about fictional representations of politics.

I write regularly for the Guardian's Comment is Free and have presented a couple of documentaries for Radio 4, the latest one on dystopias and politics can still be heard here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b02x5c9z
