About me

Nathan Charlton completed his PhD at the LSE. His thesis was an historical investigation of how ideologies and cities have shaped each other. His work developed a theoretical strategy for explaining how urban forms and political projects have afforded each other's development.

Nathan combines his academic work with consultancy on technology and business change programmes in the media and higher education sectors. At the European Institute he has worked with Masters students on dissertation workshops and surgeries, particularly those whose interests and potential dissertation topics lie in the humanities.

He has a long-standing commitment to public engagement, as director of the long-running Big Ideas events in London which ran from 2007 to 2015. He currently organises Different Class in cooperation with the European Institute.

As well as his PhD, Nathan holds an MSc in European Studies (Ideas & Identities) from the LSE and a BA (Hons) in American Studies (History) from the University of Sussex.
