Staff Profile:Dr Daniel Renshaw

Name:
Dr Daniel Renshaw
Job Title:
Lecturer in History
Responsibilities:

I currently teach the part one courses 'Journeys Through History 1', 'Journeys Through History 2', 'Research Skills and Opportunities' , the part one option module 'Arriving in Britain: A History of Migration', the part two option module 'Europe in the Twentieth Century', and teach jointly with Professor Matthew Worley the part three topic module 'Political Extremism in Britain'.

Areas of Interest:

My research focuses on migration to Britain and across Europe in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and more broadly on concepts of diaspora, identity, self-definitions and contested belonging since 1800. I am particularly interested in the various forms that migrant interactions take -with a host society, within the migrant community itself, and with other migrant groups sharing geographical or chronological space. My research also looks at the relationships between minority groups and radical left-wing politics from the Victorian period onwards. In my work I examine the cyclical nature of responses to migration. I am currently preparing a project analysing the concept of the repatriation of migrant groups in modern Britain from the 1840s up to 2016. I am also interested in the intersections between 'difference' - economic, religious and ethnic - and the revival of the gothic novel in the 1890s. My book, Socialism and the Diasporic 'Other', a comparative study of Jewish and Irish communal politics in the East End from 1889 to 1912, is due to be published by Liverpool University Press in early Spring 2018.
