David Loner

PhD student in Modern British History

Sidney Street
Cambridge CB2 3HU


I was born in Rock Hill, South Carolina and raised in Mooresville, North Carolina. I hold a bachelor's degree in history from Greensboro College and a master's degree in European history from the University of North Carolina-Greensboro. 

Research Interests

My research addresses the role of academic culture and gender in the history of twentieth-century British philosophy. Specifically, I am interested in emerging notions of sociability and professional identity shared among men and women trained by philosophers Ludwig Wittgenstein and G.E. Moore between the two world wars.  


Prior to enrolling as a PhD student at the University of Cambridge in 2014, I served for three years as half-time graduate assistant at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville (2010-13) and adjunct instructor at Greensboro College (2013). As a graduate assistant, I led discussion sections and proctored examinations in survey courses for Western Civilization and World Civilizations. As an adjunct instructor, I designed course curricula for Western Civilization (c. 1350-2000) and the History of Political Thought.
