Michael Sonenscher awarded a Research Fellowship

Michael Sonenscher

King's Fellow and historian Dr Michael Sonenscher has been awarded a two-year Leverhulme Research Fellowship. The Fellowship will allow Michael to take a break from his routine academic duties and pursue a research project.

The aim of the project is to investigate the bearing of the so-called "quarrel between the ancients and moderns" of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and its underlying claims about morality, culture and history, on the content of modern political ideologies as these began to take shape in the early nineteenth century.

The College will now appoint a temporary history lecturer to replace Michael Sonenscher and direct studies in History.
