This is the website and blog of Paul Seaward, which I’ll use to describe my work in progress on a project to create a new, thematic History of Parliament, a project I call ‘Reformation to Referendum’. Up until the end of 2017 the Director of the History of Parliament, I was lucky enough to be one of the four new British Academy / Wolfson Foundation Research Professors chosen that year. The arrangement provides us with funding for three years’ worth of uninterrupted research, a huge luxury and enormous privilege. For that period I will continue to be based at the History of Parliament, whose work will be an enormously important resource for my own.
There’s more on the project here; and more on me here. I plan to post occasional articles on the progress of my research, as well as to continue with the blog I started in 2017, an A to Z of parliamentary history.
