Dina is an historian of twentieth-century political thought and culture currently teaching Modern European History at Queen Mary University of London. She is also one of the conveners of the Passionate Politics group at UCL, an interdisciplinary research group exploring ties between emotions, social movements and politics. Her first book, European Elites and Ideas of Empire, 1917-1957 (forthcoming, Cambridge University Press), charts how European identity was constructed in elite transnational milieus from the debris of three continental empires. In September 2015, Dina will join the Department of History at the University of Sheffield as a Lecturer in Modern History.
