Background and activities


Before joining NTNU as an Associate Professor I taught history at Cardiff University. I completed my PhD at the Faculty of History at the University of Cambridge in 2010. I was also a Churchill Archives Centre By-Fellow at Churchill College, Cambridge in 2014.


I am a historian of modern Britain. I am particularly interested in the history of British politics, intellectual cultures, and media history during the twentieth century. My current research focuses on the history of British Conservative politics and political writing. I have also done some work on British and European fascism. I am now developing a book project about intellectual cultures of British Conservatism, 1918-55. In addition, I am working on two new articles that explore different aspects of Conservative and fascist politics in interwar Britain, and, another article on right-wing women. In the future I plan to develop a larger project comparing Conservative parties and political ideas in twentieth century Britain and Scandinavia. 

Research Seminar

I am the principal organizer of the Twentieth Century History research seminar at NTNU in cooperation with Jonas Scherner, Anette Homlong Storeide, and Elisabeth Piller.


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


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.
