Fara Dabhoiwala was born in Bristol in 1969. Since 1996 he has taught at Oxford, first at All Souls College and latterly at Exeter College. His book The Origins of Sex published in 2012 was much praised and looked at the sexual mores of men and women in the past, and why they had changed so much and so suddenly in the eighteenth century. His next book will be a global history of English and its uses since the middle ages.
