I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Durham’s University’s School of Government & International Affairs, researching electoral violence in England and Wales, 1832–1914.

My research interests and areas of expertise include contemporary devolution and governance, Scottish and British political cultures in the nineteenth century, UK radicalism and conservatism, parliamentary politics in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and digital humanities.

I tweet (very rarely) from my personal account @garyhutchison16 and a bit more regularly a work capacity from @VictorianEV_UK
