Research supervision

  • Popular understandings of the First World War and the implications of the centenary
Ultimately, historical narratives are constructions and I help students to pick these apart through interactive lectures, seminar activities, alternative assessment, and project work. I seek to instigate innovation wherever I can, such as the First World War School Workshop initiative, and support opportunities in the way of international exchanges (particularly with American and Chinese).
