Dr Daniel Renshaw
Job Title:

I currently teach the part one courses 'Journeys Through History 2', the part one option ‘Arriving in Britain’ the part two option module 'Europe in the Twentieth Century', and the part three option 'Poor Law to Hostile Environment'.

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 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, was published by Liverpool University Press in early Spring 2018. My next book, The Discourse of Repatriation in Britain, 1845-2016, is due to be published by Routledge in mid-2021. This will examine conceptions of repatriation or expulsion as a response to migration from the Irish Famine up to Brexit.

Future research will examine the attitudes of the various British Church establishments to migration from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the present day.
