Dr Lise Butler
I am a Lecturer in Modern History at City, University of London. I was previously a lecturer in History at Pembroke College, Oxford, and completed my doctorate at University College, Oxford in 2015.
I am a historian of modern Britain, with particular expertise in political history, left-wing politics, and the history of the social sciences. I am currently completing a monograph on the policy maker, sociologist and social innovator Michael Young and the relationship between the social sciences and left-wing politics in post-war Britain. My next project will examine critiques of the concept of work in Britain in the 1960s and 70s.
Alongside my colleague Dr. Dina Fainberg, I am currently working to establish City's new BA in History and Centre for Modern History.
