Subject: The Rise of Political Responsibility in British Parliamentary Culture, 1780-1790

Supervisor: Prof. Dror Wahrman 

 Abstract: In my research I trace the emerging of a political culture of responsibility, accountability, and professionalism in 1780s Britain. Examining the ruling elite's reaction to the aftermath of the American Revolution, I wish to explore how a new political ethos helped shape the British modern state and its political sphere.

Bio: I completed my BA and MA in the department of History in The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. My main filed of study is British visual cultural and economic and political history in the long eighteenth century. My research deals with the gradual development of the modern British democratic tradition and the changing roles of the politician in that process.
