I am a historian of 20th century Britain and Ireland, interested in gender, sexuality, and colonialism/postcolonialism. I work as a Senior Lecturer in the History Department at the University of Birmingham, where I am the Director of the Modern British Studies Centre. I earned my PhD from Brown University and spent several years working in the History & Literature program at Harvard University.
