Dr Tom Hulme


Dr Hulme’s research is focused on the modern city as the site of belonging and citizenship.

Through his research on urban culture in British and American cities in the twentieth century, he is exploring how governments and associations cooperated to shape better local citizens through architecture, education, festivals, and historical re-enactments.

This research has particular relevance to both continuing and recent discussions about citizenship that which have come following increasing globalisation as well as socio-political shifts like Brexit.
