research description:
My academic work focuses on the history of nineteenth century theories of biological and social evolution, especially with regard to British imperialism, conceptions of progress and hierarchies of race. I have a secondary interest in current efforts to apply evolutionary theory to contemporary social phenomena, most notably religion, nationalism and other forms of social solidarity/identity, which cannot be reduced to natural selection, but which may have a (partly) Darwinian base.
