Biography: 

Pete read English at Oxford University from 2001 to 2005 before taking the CELL MA in Renaissance and Early Modern Studies in 2008-9. His PhD thesis, supervised by Jerry Brotton and Lisa Jardine, is titled “The Centre of the Muniment: the India Office Records and the Historiography of Early Modern Empire, 1875-1891”, and deals with the early records of the East India Company, the knowledge-producing networks of the late nineteenth-century imperial establishment, and how the latter made use of the former.  

Pete continues to teach on undergraduate courses at Queen Mary, specialising in medieval and early modern literatures, Shakespeare, and critical theory
