Meet The MHR team!

Our team works closely together to create and produce the MHR, and can be found on this page. Producing the MHR involves many working elements as shown below. From this, you should be able to find who you need and understand how the MHR works. If you have any queries about the MHR organisation or want to join any of the roles as they became available (check out our Get Involved page for more details), email midlandshistoricalreview@gmail.com

David Robinson, Editor-in-Chief

David Robinson is the Editor-in-Chief and a founder-member of the Midlands Historical Review.

After a long stint in the business world, David began a much more interesting career in the academic sphere and was recently awarded his PhD in history by the University of Nottingham.

David’s research interests include eighteenth and nineteenth-century British travel writing, particularly on India and Italy, and British cultural history during the same period. He has published several peer reviewed articles and recently edited a collection of historical and contemporary travel writing, due for publication by Anthem in Spring 2021.

When not writing and editing the MHR, David can often be found hiking and climbing in Scotland, and chasing his errant spaniel across the Vale of Belvoir.

Waseem Ahmed, Lead Editor (Research Articles)

Waseem is currently an Early Modern MA student at University of Birmingham and will be embarking on a PhD in History at UCL, funded by the UCL Research Opportunity Scholarship. His thesis will explore how non-elite men and women during the English republic (1649-1660) collaborated and co-operated with the state through political processes and everyday practices. At undergraduate and master’s level, his research has looked at divisions during the Cromwellians Protectorate and how Cromwellians were able to assimilate themselves to Charles II’s government. His research interests include politics and political culture broadly defined during the Early Modern period, particularly seventeenth century Britain, alongside the French Revolution, Wars of the Roses and twentieth century historiography. Away from the library, he enjoys a Saturday morning Parkrun and an occasional game of Squash.
