- Modern history (after 1800)
I completed my PhD in the Faculty of History at the University of Cambridge in 2010 before accepting the position of Associate Professor at NTNU in 2011. I will be a Churchill Archives Centre By-Fellow at Churchill College, Cambridge in 2014.
My research interests include the history of Conservative politics in twentieth century Britain, the history of political writing and publishing, and interwar European fascism. I am now writing a book about Conservative politics and literary life in Britain, 1924-45. My next major project will research British political cultures during the Cold War.
ENG2452 Britain in Europe
ENG1402 Modern British History and Culture
Master's/ PhD Thesis Supervision
I am happy to discuss proposals for Master's & PhD supervision in most areas of twentieth century British political, cultural, and social history. I will consider research projects on current affairs and politics in the twenty-first century, and I am interested in comparative approaches to the history of Britain and Norway, or more broadly Scandinavia.
