I joined the Department of Politics as a Lecturer in British Politics in September 2015 and was then promoted to Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in October 2018. Prior to joining I was a Research Fellow at the University of Leeds in Rhetoric and Oratory. I completed my PhD at the University of Huddersfield in 2011 under the supervision of Emeritus Professor of British Politics, Brendan Evans.
In 2018 Prof Bruce Gibson, Dr David Jeffery and I launched the The Network for the Interface of Classics and Politics based here at Liverpool. The Network investigates the relationship between the ancient world, modern politics and international studies, broadly defined.
In 2017 I won the Richard Rose Prize for making a distinctive contribution towards the study of British Politics. I am also the co-convenor (with Tim Heppell, Leeds) of the PSA Politics and History Group. I am a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, and also a Fellow of the HEA having completed a qualification in Professional Higher Education Practice.
I regularly tweet at @AndrewCrines.
I am enthusiastic to supervise promising doctoral candidates in the areas of British politics; oratory/rhetoric (broadly defined and applied); party leadership and ideology; parliamentary studies.
