Dan Lomas

Programme Leader, MA Intelligence and Security Studies, University of Salford

I have been a Lecturer in International History at Salford since January 2014. Before this I completed my AHRC funded doctoral research on intelligence and security during the post-war Attlee government, 1945-1951. My research looks at the post-war interface between intelligence and policy in Britain.

I teach on Britain's Cold War, post-1945 domestic security, the UK's foreign intelligence agencies and Twentieth Century international history. I am willing to supervise dissertations on a range of topics including Britain and the Cold War, British intelligence and security, and contemporary intelligence and security issues. Recent subjects include British policy towards the Soviet Union, 1945-1949, the impact of the Suez crisis on British decolonisation, the development of British counter-insurgency in Malaya and Kenya, and post-war strategic deception.
