Dr Christos Hadjiyiannis' main research interests lie in the literature and intellectual history of the early twentieth-century.
At Wolfson, he is working on a book about modernism and Conservatism, entitled Conservative Modernists. This monograph examines intersections in the aesthetic writings and political journalism of "Tories" who played a formative part in the development of early Anglophone modernism: T. E. Hulme; his friend and associate Edward Storer; and J. M. Kennedy, a prominent contributor to The New Age magazine and a prolific scholar of Nietzsche. The book also looks at other "conservative" modernists, such as Ford Madox Ford and T. S. Eliot. In addition to literary modernism, he has a broader interest in the field of History of Ideas.
