I am Professor of Political History at the University of Nottingham and have a long-term interest in the Labour Party and British politics more generally. Between 2006 and 2011 I was editor of Parliamentary Affairs.
I am now especially interested in the fictional representation of politics in Britain and the United States. I have presented a couple of documentaries on Radio Four on that subject.
I also contribute to The Guardian's Comment is Free: http://www.theguardian.com/profile/steven-fielding
