Ideas and Identities is a website reflecting my interest in cultural and intellectual history. Its title was also the title of an undergraduate course I once taught which provided students with an introduction to medieval and early modern history through a focus on the ideas, mentalities, art, texts and culture of the period. Some of the content here will be based on that course, as well as on other modules I have previously taught.

The aim of the website is to present engaging, informative and insightful articles and essays on cultural and intellectual history. I hope that they will prove useful and thought-provoking to general readers as much as students and academics.
