Duncan Simpson gained his PhD at King's College London. His doctoral thesis examined the relations between the Catholic Church and the Salazar dictatorship (Estado Novo) from 1928 to 1968. He is the author of two books and numerous book chapters and articles published in academic journals in Portugal, Brazil, France, Britain and the USA. As a Marie Curie Fellow at the Institute of Social Sciences of the University of Lisbon (ICS-UL) from 2019 to 2021, he completed a history of the Salazarist political police 'from below', combining the methodologies of oral history, opinion surveying, and archival research. Having been awarded a 6-year CEEC Individual Grant by the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT) starting in 2022, he is currently working on public letter-writing in Salazar´s Portugal, as a research fellow at the ICS-UL. From January 2024, Duncan Simpson will be FLAD Visiting Professor at the Department of Portuguese and Brazilian Studies of Brown University, Providence, USA, for the duration of the Spring Semester 2024.

  1. Blog: 'A History of the PIDE from below'. The historiography of the PIDE has been marked by a heavily top-down approach to the subject, focusing on the PIDE’s methods of repression and on the minority of oppositionists these methods were applied to. In this blog, I propose to take a look at the PIDE ‘from below’, uncovering the various forms of spontaneous interaction between individual citizens and the secret police.. 2019.

2014/09/01 - 2016/08/31 "Histoire des pratiques corporelles en Europe (1870-1945)". The course offered a historical approach to the development of corporal practices in Europe, focusing on the complex interplay of economic, ideological, religious and political factors in the emergence of modern attitudes to the body and their effect on such practices as physical education.

2019/09/15 In September 2019 I gave a two-page interview in the Portuguese daily newspaper Público.
