I joined the Department of Politics as a Lecturer in British Politics in September 2015. 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 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.
