About the Author
My name is Tamson Pietsch and I am an historian at Brunel University in London. My research focuses on the cultural and intellectual history of Britain and its Empire in the 19th and 20th centuries. I am currently writing a book about academic networks in this period. Previously I was the Sir Christopher Cox Junior Fellow at New College in the University of Oxford and from September 2013 I will be taking up a three-year DECRA Fellowship at the University of Sydney. You can read more about me here and you can also find me on twitter. If you have any comments or queries, please do get in touch.
