The thesis explored the ways in which activists beliefs and activities are shaped by historical and ideological contexts. Kevin subsequently worked as a Research Assistant at City University (London) and published a book - Anti-War Activism: New Media and Protest in the Information Age - with Jenny Pickerill and Frank Webster. Kevin moved to the University of Manchester as Lecturer in Sociology in 2007.
