Summary

Stefan is a social historian specialising in the history of the British working classes during the second half of the 20th century.

His publications focus on changing patterns of sociability and modes of belonging, with particular reference to the impact of post-war 'affluence'.

His recent book, 'Working-Class Community in the Age of Affluence', has been published by Routledge as part of the series 'Perspectives in Economic and Social History'.

Stefan is currently researching working-class involvement in the St John Ambulance Brigade across the 20th century, as a lens through which to consider change and continuity in civil society.
