My PhD research is focussed on the portrayals of the relationship between Britain and the Holocaust. I am interested in exploring the ways in which the contemporary British response to the Holocaust has been represented in schools, museums, and similar educational settings. In the British context, I seek to site my research within the broader context of existing Second World War narratives and public memory of the Holocaust.
For my undergraduate degree, I read History at Queens’ College, Cambridge, where my dissertation work centred on the relationship between Winston Churchill and the Holocaust. Subsequently, I completed an MA in History Education at University College London (UCL), and obtained the PGCE (University of Buckingham) whilst practising as a teacher of History.
Since 2018, I have acted as Book Reviewer for The Wiener Holocaust Library, and I am also a contributing author to the blogs of the British Association for Holocaust Studies (BAHS) and the University of Cambridge ‘Doing History in Public’ project. I am also a member of the Durham University Centre for Modern Conflicts and Cultures (CMCC).
I welcome enquiries regarding collaborative research and opportunities for media work.
