William Whitham is a Lecturer on Social Studies. His research lies at the intersection of political ideas, mass organizations, and governance in modern Europe and Russia/Eurasia within a global framework. His current book project, Statism and Anarchy: The Politics of Subversion in Spain, Italy, and the Soviet Union, studies how anarchists and state officials shaped one another as they competed for political influence across the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Whitham received a B.A. in Social Studies from Harvard College (2014), an M.Phil. in Political Thought and Intellectual History from Trinity College, University of Cambridge (2015), and a Ph.D. in History from Princeton University (2021). He welcomes inquiries from students interested in Social Studies or in topics related to radical or nonconformist ideas, movements, institutions, and regimes—left, right, or beyond left and right—in any region of the modern world.
