Areas of Interest

 I am a cultural historian specialising in 20th-century France. My main research interests are in the history of the First World War, visual culture studies and the history of the voluntary sector in Europe.

After I completed my PhD on the destinies and representations of WWI facially disfigured soldiers, I worked on the EU INTERREG-funded project 1914FACES2014 (2013-2015), which looked at the legacies of First World War facially disfigured soldiers and plastic surgery. The study of visible facial differences, their representations and impact on the person and the onlooker, remains a central aspect in my research.

I welcome enquiries concerning research supervision in any of my areas of research interest.



At Part 1 I currently teach French oral classes and contribute to the modules 'The Making of Modern France' and ‘The Making of Modern Europe’

At Part 2 I convene the module 'The First World War: Then and Now'.

At Part 3 I teach on the team-taught comparative module 'European Case Studies'. My Case Study introduces students to issues relating to memory and commemorations of the First World War in Europe since 1914.

I will be on research leave in the Spring Term of the academic year 2018/2019.
