Stuart Middleton is a Newton Trust Research Fellow in History at Fitzwilliam. He is currently working on a new history of British politics during the twentieth century, which focuses upon the weakening of social democracy after 1945. His PhD was an intellectual history of the Left in England which reconstructed debates about art, literature, ‘culture’ and class from the 1930s to the 1960s. He has published several articles on twentieth-century British history, including a major re-evaluation of post-war affluence in The English Historical Review. He teaches the modern British papers in the History Tripos.
