Dr Lucian Robinson

Teaching Fellow



I studied History at Oxford, and then completed an MPhil in Political Thought and Intellectual History and a PhD at Cambridge.


Research Interests:

I’m an intellectual historian with a particular interest in the history of ideas in eighteenth century and nineteenth-century France.

My research focuses on the connections between the history of philosophy, literary history and the history of political thought in this period.
