Dr Thomas Linehan
Lecturer in History

Marie Jahoda 232


I graduated from Ruskin College, Oxford, which has links to the labour and trade union movement, in 1983. From Ruskin, I went on to major in History at the University of York. The following year I studied for my Certificate in Further and Higher Education at Garnet College in London. From Garnet, I went on to study for a doctorate in History at the University of London (Royal Holloway), which was funded by an ESRC research studentship. I graduated with a PhD in 1992. I have been employed by Brunel (incl BUC & WLIHE) since 1992.
