Overview

I recently returned to the University of Manchester as Lecturer in Modern British History, having previously been Lecturer in Nineteenth-Century British History from 2013 to 2016. In the intervening period, I was Senior Research Fellow in Modern British History at Durham University, where, with Richard Huzzey, I led the Leverhulme Trust funded Rethinking Petitions, Parliament and People in the Long Nineteenth Century project (£367,072, RPG-097-2016). Between 2018 and 2019 at the same institution I was Principal Investigator of the AHRC International Research Network on Petitions and Petitioning from the Medieval Period to the Present (£44,253, AH/R008868/1). This was a collaborative, interdisciplinary project including scholars from across the humanities and social sciences from eleven different countries, as well as practitioners from legislative petitions committees and non-governmental organisations. Prior to my first stint at Manchester, I was Research Fellow at the History of Parliament Trust, working on their House of Commons, 1832-1945 project.

I have lectured and taught on modern British social, cultural, economic and political history from the late eighteenth century to the present, as well as urban history, local history, historiography, visual culture, and research methods.
