Professor of German Historical Studies, University of Liverpool

I am a historian of modern Germany - officially Professor of German Historical Studies. I grew up in New York, and studied in Montreal and at King's College Cambridge before coming to Liverpool. I have held fellowships and visiting professorships in Britain (King's College Cambridge), the United States (US Holocaust Memorial Museum Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies), and Germany (Free University Berlin, Max-Planck-Institut fuer Geschichtswissenschaft Goettingen, University of Bochum, Herzog-August Bibliothek Wolfenbuettel).
My research covers German social and cultural history between about 1700 and 1950, with current emphases on gender, race and colonialism and financial cultures.
