Dr Simon Peplow


Born in England but bred in South Wales, I began my academic career through a BA in History at Aberystwyth University, where I subsequently remained for a further year to complete my MA in Political Culture in Modern Britain. Following this, I then moved to Exeter to begin my AHRC-funded PhD in History, which I completed in 2015 with a thesis on 'Race, Policing, and Public Inquiries during the 1980-81 Collective Violence in England'. I have since remained teaching on a number of modules in Exeter, becoming Lecturer in History (Education and Research) in September 2016.
