William Prescott

DPhil (PhD) Candidate in British Political History, University of Oxford

My research focuses on the history of the British Conservative Party from the late 19th century onwards. Before moving to the UK, I completed undergraduate degrees in law and history at the University of Adelaide, Australia. I then stayed in Adelaide for a research master's, and wrote a thesis about the Conservatives in opposition after the Second World War. I am currently attempting to finish a PhD on the Conservative and the role of the state between 1929 and 1940 at University College, Oxford.
