Peter W. Walker

Lecturer in History


Portrait of UW History Lecturer Peter Walker

I work on early modern Britain, the British Empire, and the Atlantic World, focusing on the history of religion. I teach classes in those fields, as well as in European and World history. I received my PhD from Columbia University in 2016 and MPhil from the University of Oxford in 2010.
