Welcome

Welcome. Please feel free to post comments here. I wish to kick this blog into some sort of life after leaving it to rust for so long. I am interested in following up discussion with interested parties on the themes apparent on my website, especially the history of the modern state, my topic during my four months at the European University in Florence.  In February 2011 I take up a Fernand Braudel Fellowship at the EUI. The state in its material and technological forms is the topic of my new book, to be finished 2011, and published 2012 by CUP.

However, I am also working on peasant religion in the 19th and 20th centuries, concentrating on Ireland but with an interest in the subject in general.

 I am based in Manchester, and live outside the city on the borders of the Derbyshire Peak  District.

Go ahead and contribute! PJ
