Dr Steven Wagner
Lecturer

Marie Jahoda 217

Summary

Before coming to Brunel, I was a SSHRC postdoctoral fellow in the Department of History and Classical Studies at McGill University, Montreal. I received my DPhil from the University of Oxford, and my BA and MA from the University of Calgary. Since 2007, I have been looking at records declassified in the UK, USA, and Israel which shed new light on the story of the Palestine Mandate, but also on the previously unknown role of intelligence in countering terrorism & insurgency, and in shaping British policy.

 Qualifications:

  • DPhil – University of Oxford
  • MA – University of Calgary
  • BA – University of Calgary
