HISTORY IN THE DIGITAL AGE
Interview with Dr Sarah Richardson and Professor Mark Knights, Department of History
Professor Mark Knights is interested in early modern texts. He has worked on print culture and his latest book Representation and Misrepresentation in later Stuart Britain (Oxford 2005) examines its relationship to partisan politics. He is currently director of the Eigtheenth Century MA programme and convenes its core module on 'consumption and culture'. He works on the political culture of early modern Britain c.1500 - c.1800, with particular interests in the integration of political and social history, the nature of public discourse, the role of print, and the interaction of politics, literature and ideas. Prof Knights is also involved in a collaborative project to create a 'virtual research environment' for the study of texts, and a research project to explore words and concepts in the early modern period.
