Peter W. Walker

Lecturer in History


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.

I am working on a book titled The Church Militant: Anglicanism and Loyalism in the British Empire in the Age of the American Revolution. This addresses the religious and international history of the American Revolution, the political history of martyrdom, and the relationship between empire-building and secularization. An article based on this research won the 2016 Whitehill Prize from the Colonial Society of Massachusetts: “The Bishop Controversy, the Imperial Crisis, and Religious Radicalism in New England, 1763-74”, New England Quarterly, 90, 3 (September 2017): 306-43.
