Personal profile

Biography

I am an historian of childhood and youth activism in whose research examines children's roles in American politics, mainly in the late-nineteenth and twentieth centuries. 

I was awarded my PhD by the University of Northumbria, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, after completing my project "Californians and Others: Marginalised Children and the Golden State during the Great Depression" under the supervision of Professors Tony Badger and Joe Street. I originally taught at Roehampton as a visiting lecturer before taking up my post as a lecturer in history in September 2023. 

I have also published research articles examining methodological and theoretical issues within the field of children's history. This work includes examining the political content of children's drawings from the Spanish Civil War and more recent conflicts in order to bring more "voices" into the historical narrative. I also consider researcher welfare when it comes to working with archives of children's historic trauma.
