Following the launch of the Centre for Philosophy of History at St Mary’s University College, Twickenham earlier this year, recently appointed Professorial Research Fellow Alun Munslow talks about his new role.
“Can I say ‘thank you’ for the invitation to join the Centre for the Philosophy of History. My welcome has been very warm and colleagues have quickly smoothed my path – even to sorting out which trains to catch to get me to and from Euston! I shall certainly do what I can to make the Centre a key feature in the landscape of history thinking and practice in the UK and further afield. The initiative of staff is splendid and funding by the University College is far sighted. I am convinced that the Centre will quickly establish itself as a major UK and international focus for advanced thinking on both the theory and practice of history.” Prof Alun Munslow.
The Centre launched in September and is a hub for organising conferences, workshops and seminars whilst providing a base for recruiting postgraduate research students, as well as for making regular applications for external research funding.
