Hello, I’m Dan and I’m a Lecturer in Social and Political Thought at the Open University.

I like to talk to people about politics. And about places. I’ve been lucky enough to have the time and space to teach and write. I’ve lived a colourful life in between. This little website collects a few of those things together in one place.

Click the lines beside the header to take a look around. The blog is a record of recent work. Publications puts my work all in one place. Books, you can guess. Teaching is where I’ve uploaded past lectures and ideas for some of the many courses in philosophy, history and politics I have taught. You can also subscribe through the menu below.
