Peter D'Sena is Principal Lecturer in History and Education at Leeds Metropolitan University. He has researched and written on crime in eighteenth century England, school history and cultural diversity. Before moving to Leeds, Peter worked in schools for 16 years ultimately becoming Head of History in an inner-London comprehensive in which the 1100 pupils could, amongst them, speak 38 languages. He also held schoolteacher research fellowships at both Oxford and Cambridge. In his current post, he trains both primary and secondary teachers and has particular responsibilities — organising the delivery of Professional Studies and as leader for a new form of training, the Flexible PGCE.

In terms of his own diversity, Peter would describe himself as an Anglo-Indian-Londoner.
