Dr Patrick Andelic

Assistant Professor

Department: Humanities

Patrick joined the faculty at Northumbria in 2017, having previously taught at Queen Mary University of London, the University of Oxford, and Ruskin College, Oxford. His research focuses on American party politics during the late twentieth century, and particularly on liberalism and political institutions. He is currently completing his first book, Donkey Work:  Congressional Democrats in Conservative America, 1974-1994, will be published with University Press of Kansas in 2019. In 2016, he was a Research Associate at the Rothermere American Institute, Oxford, where he produced two reports on American expatriate voters that were covered in the British, European, and U.S. media. Between 2011 and 2012, he was a British Research Council Fellow at the John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress, Washington, D.C. Tragically, he is making good progress on his life’s ambition of collecting one fridge magnet from every state in the U.S.
