Alex Mayhew

I am a PhD researcher at the London School of Economics and Political Science, where I study the morale of English soldiers during the First World War. My approach and expertise encompasses traditional history, psychology, sociology and linguistics. A central theme in my investigations is the way in which psychological frames of reference can influence human decision making and outlook. Alongside this work I am  a Graduate Teaching Assistant and maintain a strong interest in current affairs, international relations and politics.
