Research Interests: My principal research interests are in the intellectual and political history of nineteenth and early twentieth century Britain. More specifically, my work examines the development of ideas about ‘C/conservatism’ as either an intellectual or political tradition. I am currently working on a monograph examining the posthumous career of Edmund Burke (1730-97) in Britain – i.e. his transformation from Whig politician to ‘founder of conservatism’ in Britain (the subject of my doctoral thesis) – and exploring further aspects of C/conservative thought in Britain, c. 1880-1931.

Dr Emily Jones is the Kaplanoff Research Fellow in History.
