The School of History is delighted to welcome Prof. Richard Whatmore to St Andrews. Prof. Whatmore comes to us from the University of Sussex and is an intellectual historian of early modern and modern Europe. He was educated at both the University of Cambridge and Harvard University.
His most recent book, Against War and Empire: Geneva, Britain and France in the Eighteenth Century, was published by Yale University Press in 2012.
In 2012, Prof. Whatmore was interviewed at Sussex on what inspired him to become an intellectual historian and the challenges of teaching and studying intellectual history. The interview can be watched here.
