Dr Andrew Mumford elected Fellow of the Royal Historical Society

Andrew Mumford

Associate Professor Dr Andrew Mumford has been recognised for his contribution to historical scholarship by the RHS. The scholarships are awarded not just for academics in history departments but acknowledge the work of those in other disciplines, including politics and international relations, who use historical research methods to help contextualise contemporary events.

Andrew's research focuses on the modern history of warfare from the Cold War to the 'War on Terror'. He believes that to solely analyse conflicts around the world today in isolation, ignorant of their historical lineage, would be short-sighted. Historical scholarship into the antecedents of contemporary conflict is essential in order to understand the origins, processes, and possible outcomes of the wars around us today.

Congratulations Andrew!
