GERARD DELANTY. Professor of Sociology and Social & Political Thought, Sussex University, Brighton UK.
I work in the field of historical and political sociology and social theory. I am particularly interested in the intersection of history and sociology. I have recently been working on the European cultural heritage in the context of a Horizon2020 research project http://culturalbase.eu/. My current research interests include the Anthropocene debate, cosmopolitanism, and modernity in comparative perspective. My recent publications include The Cosmopolitan Imagination (Cambridge University Press, 2009, Formations of European Modernity (Palgrave 2013) and The European Heritage: A Critical Interpretation (forthcoming Routledge 2018). I have edited the European Journal of Social Theory since it began in 1998. I have started a blog site on Brexit related issues at www.gerarddelanty.wordpress.com
