About Todd Carter

Todd Carter is a DPhil candidate in History at University College, Oxford. His research focuses upon the conduct of British and American policies toward Rhodesia in the context of the Cold War in Southern Africa, c. 1963-1980. At the same time, his doctoral project will also shed light on the part that personality and human relationships played in promoting (and occasionally obstructing) progress toward majority rule in Rhodesia, and consider whether partisan control of British government mattered for relations between Britain and the United States. Prior to starting his DPhil, he gained a distinction in an MSt in Modern British and European History at the same institution and, before that, a first class BA (Hons) degree in History and Politics from Oxford Brookes University.
