Staff Profile:Prof Matthew Worley

Name:
Professor Matthew Worley
Job Title:
Professor of Modern History
Responsibilities:

Reader in History, University of Reading

My teaching responsibilities include:

An MA option 'Building a New Jerusalem: The Labour Party, 1900-45'

A 'special' third year module 'In Search of revolution: International Communism, 1902-43'

A second year 'period' module, 'Under the Red Flag: Labour and British Politics, 1880-1939'

A third-year 'topic' module on 'Political Extremism in Britain between the Wars'

I am currently involved in the supervision of six PhD students and would be happy to supervise others intersted in the subjects of British politics, communism, socialism, fascism, and British youth cultures in the later twentieth century

Areas of Interest:

My main areas of interest lay in twentieth-century British politics. To date, I have concentrated mainly on the interwar years, with a particular interest in the British labour movement. I have also written on communism in Britain and in Europe, while my research into Sir Oswald Mosley's New Party led me to work on the far right of the British political spectrum. My current interest is directed towards the link between politics and youth culture in the late 1970s and early 1980s. This, I hope, will lead to book entitled Anarchy in the UK: Politics, Punk and Society, 1976-84. I am a part of the steering committee for the Interdisciplinary Network for the Study of Subculture, Popular Music and Social Change, for further information please click here

Research groups / Centres:

I am currently a co-editor of the Twentieth Century Communism journal and the reviews editor for the Socialist History Journal. I am also a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society.
