Prof Thomas Dixon
My current research interests are in the histories of emotions (especially tears and weeping), medicine and science, and in the cultural history of philosophy (including Stoicism and existentialism). Previous research projects have explored the histories of psychological categories, Victorian moral thought, and the relationships between science and religion.

Dr Madeleine Davis
My major research interest is in the history of socialist political thought in Britain. I have focused especially on the post-1956 British New Left, a current whose key thinkers included E.P. Thompson, John Saville, Stuart Hall, Raymond Williams, Ralph Milliband, Perry Anderson and Tom Nairn. An earlier strand of my work, arising from my time at ILAS, focused on the Pinochet case and its implications and effects, especially in terms of securing accountability for past human rights violations in countries that have undergone transitions from authoritarian rule.
