Sina Talachian

PhD Student in History


I'm an aspiring intellectual historian with a background in history and philosophy. 

Research Interests

My PhD project is on the invention of the English Marxist historian as a distinctive scholarly persona. Covering the period between 1920 and 1963, the project focuses on the origins, existence and subsequent traces of the Communist Party Historians’ Group (1946-1956) in the broader historical discipline.
