About Aaron Andrews

Aaron's PhD thesis (awarded by the University of Leicester in April 2019) investigated the 'urban crisis' in Liverpool in the 1970s and 1980s. His thesis used Liverpool to examine the role of sociological studies in the construction of the 'inner city' as a policy problem in Britain. It showed how the state and voluntary sector's apparent inability to alleviate the problems evidenced in these studies led to a crisis in which Britain's inner cities came to be seen as 'ungovernable'.

Aaron is currently working as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow on the AHRC-funded project 'Forged by Fire: Burns Injury and Identity in Britain, c. 1800-2000'. Within this project, he is involved in researching the historical geography of burns injuries, as well as investigating several 'iconic' fires in the late-twentieth century and their impact on urban and cultural identity.

Research Interests

Aaron's research focuses on the political and social history of cities and urban space in late-twentieth-century Britain.
