Dr Harry Stopes
I am interested in the history of Europe and its global connections around the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, with a focus on Britain, France and Germany. In my PhD, which I completed at University College London in 2017, I explored the interplay between local identity, cultural cosmopolitanism and globalisation in Manchester and Lille between 1860 and 1914. More broadly I am interested in urban history, and the ways in which people in Western Europe (and beyond) experienced the global transformations of the late nineteenth century in their everyday lives.
At Queen Mary I have been teaching Europe in a Global Context Since 1800 since 2016-2017. This year I also began teaching on Unravelling Britain.
