Joe Hardwick

After receiving his first degree at the University of Liverpool in 2001, Joe spent two years in the United Stated studying for an MA in American Studies at Michigan State University. After completing research on the connections between nineteenth-century reformers in Britain and America for his MA, Joe returned to Britain and in 2004 he began doctoral research at the University of York on early nineteenth-century expatriate reform communities in Britain’s eastern empire. His doctoral research was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, and he completed the PhD in the summer of 2008. Between 2008 and 2009 he was Teaching Fellow in Eighteenth and Nineteenth-Century British History at the University of Warwick, and taught various courses in British, European and imperial history at the University of York and Manchester Metropolitan University before joining Northumbria in 2010.
