John Eglin's work explores the relationship between culture and politics in British society from the late 1600s until the end of the 1700s. His current research project, entitled "Gambling and the Public Sphere in England's Long Eighteenth Century," traces the emergence of commercialized gambling from the 1660s through the 1790s. He teaches the first half of the European Civilization survey, as well as upper division courses in British and early modern European history.
