Lucia Linares


I am a PhD student working on Weimar Political Thought. In particular I am interested in the debates surrounding the drafting of the Weimar constitution and how certain political concepts relating to the modern (secular) state were discussed by German Gentiles and German Jews. My project is framed within the period of 1916 to 1926. 

Prior to starting my PhD, I completed my MPhil in International Relations and Politics at the University of Cambridge (Distinction) and my BA Honours in History and Politics at the University of York (First Class). 

I am a Leo Baeck and Studienstiftung Fellow for the academic year 2016/2017.
