Teaching Summary

At UCL, I teach an undergraduate survey on European History from 1870 to 1945. This course takes a broad comparative approach and integrates the British and Continental past. Students interested in this time period can also enrol in my seminar on "Violence in the European 'Age of Extemes'", which addresses the role played by violence on both individual and collective levels. On the MA level, I offer a year-long seminar on "Globalization in the Twentieth Century." Drawing on readings in economic, political, cultural and social history, this course charts the ups and downs of global interaction over the past 120 years or so.
I offer doctoral supervision in twentieth-century British and German history as well as the United States since 1945. Topics with comparative and transnational dimensions hold a particular appeal as do those that address cultural dimensions of political and economic history as well as the history of technology.
