Dr Martyn Frampton studied as both an undergraduate and graduate at Cambridge. He received his PhD from Jesus College, where he had previously been awarded the Senior Keller Prize for Distinguished Academic Record, the Schiff Prize for History and the Sir Philip Oppenheimer Prize for Outstanding Academic Performance. He was a Research Fellow at Peterhouse College, Cambridge before joining the Department of History at Queen Mary, University of London in 2009.
Dr Frampton’s area of research intersects with modern British and Irish history. He has written three books on the conflict in Northern Ireland – with specific focus on Irish republicanism. He is currently looking to expand his area of expertise to consider British State responses to the challenge posed by radical Islamism across the twentieth century.
Beyond this, he has an interest in wider issues connected with political violence and terrorism; in particular, their use by non-state actors.
Dr Frampton would welcome applications from those interested in examining the modern history of Northern Ireland, Irish republicanism and issues more broadly connected with political violence, insurgency and terrorism, and the response of democracies to those challenges.
