Background and activities


I am a historian of modern Britain. 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 was a Churchill Archives Centre By-Fellow at Churchill College, Cambridge in 2014.

Current Research

My current research focuses on the history of British Conservative politics, political writing and intellectual cultures, and European fascism. I am now writing a book about the intellectual culture of British Conservatism, 1918-55, and working on two new articles on Conservative and fascist intellectuals.


I am happy to discuss proposals for Master's & PhD supervision in most areas of  twentieth century British history. I am also very interested in comparative studies of Britain and other European countries, especially Norway. If students have other foreign languages I would encourage them to use these skills in their research.


I offer the following undergraduate courses at NTNU. Both courses inlcude a mix of traditional lectures and research-led teaching in the form of document-based seminars:

ENG2452 Britain in Europe

ENG1402 Modern British History and Culture
