Timothy W. Jones
University of South Wales, & La Trobe University
I am a cultural historian with research interests in the intersections of gender, sexuality and religion. I studied at the University of Western Australia and the University of Melbourne. My PhD was recently published as, Sexual Politics in the Church of England, 1857-1957, (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2013).
I hold a lectureship in History at the University of South Wales and am co-director of the Centre for Gender Studies there. From 2012-2015 I will also hold an Australian Research Council DECRA fellowship at La Trobe University in History and the Australian Research Centre for Sex, Health and Society.
In 2012 I convened conferences on 'New Histories of Love and Romance, c.1880-1960', and 'Material Religion in Modern Britain and its Worlds', both of which are being developed as edited collections.
I am currently working on several projects, including (i) a biographical study of D. S. Bailey and the Church of England Moral Welfare Council in 1950s Britain; (ii) an ARC DECRA funded history of the Christian Right's involvement in Australian Sexual Politics; and, (iii) a history of the treatment of sexually offending clergy since 1880, with Kate Gleeson of Macquarie University.
