  • Associate Professor in Twentieth-Century British History
  • Dept of History
  • Faculty of S&HS

I did my undergraduate degree in history at St Hugh's college, Oxford. I did the MPhil in European History at St Catharine's College, Cambridge, where I also did my PhD. From 2013-15 I was a Junior Research Fellow at Clare College, Cambridge. From 2015 I have been a lecturer in twentieth century British history at UCL. 

Research Summary

I am a historian of twentieth century Britain. My PhD examined political and popular ideas about class in England between c. 1969 and 2000. I have published work on Thatcher, including ‘Neo-liberalism and morality in the making of Thatcherite social policy’, in the Historical Journal (2012), and on New Labour, including ‘“Class” in the development of British Labour Party ideology, 1983-1997’, in Archiv für Sozialgeschichte (2013). Other historical subjects I have published on include gender, sexuality and prostitution. I am currently turning my PhD thesis into a book, and working on a project with Natalie Thomlinson (Reading) on women's activism in the miners' strike of 1984-5. For my next major project I plan to examine homelessness in twentieth century London.

Teaching Summary
I teach courses on social change, new social movements and politics in postwar Britain; on marraige and the family in twentieth-century Britain; on queer and LGBT history in Britain since c. 1880; and on the history of gender, sexuality and emotions. I have also taught a range of courses on the economic, social, cultural, political and gender history of Britain in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
