Professor Antony Taylor

Professor of Modern British History


I am a Professor of Modern British History at Sheffield Hallam University. I am primarily a historian of nineteenth-century Britain. My areas of expertise are in nineteenth-century popular politics, republicanism, anti-monarchism and monarchism, the history of ideas, and metropolitan history. I have written widely in the areas of post-Chartist politics, radical historical memory, the uses of the past by politicians operating on the British political platform and in regard to the print culture of the radical underworld. I have also examined the connections between thriller writers, sensation fiction, and popular politics in a number of articles and in a recent monograph. In more current work I have begun to explore transnational exchanges between progressives in Britain, the Nordic countries and in New Zealand.
