Dr. Francesca Granelli is a Teaching Fellow in the Department of War Studies.
Francesca’s research interests include language, trust, and strategic communications – specifically, their use in historical and contemporary revolution.
Francesca disputes the conventional interpretation of revolution as a power struggle between conflicting social forces. Her doctoral thesis is the first full length study of the relationship of trust and revolution.
Somewhat unusually for a War Studies staff member, Francesca is also qualified as both a Chartered Accountant and Corporate Financier. She spent 15 years working as a professional before returning to academic life. She holds a BA (Hons) in Geography and Psychology from the University of Manchester, along side her MA in International Relations and PhD in War Studies from King’s College London.
Areas of Interest include:
– trust and revolution
– history of ideas, concepts, and language
– social movements and networks
– strategic communication
