Professional biography

I was awarded a PhD at Royal Holloway, University of London in January 2002 and joined the Open University History Department as a lecturer in June 2009.   Previously I had been employed as an Associate Lecturer in the OU London Region for seven years from 2002 and I also taught at Royal Holloway, University of London for five years.

Research interests

My main research interests include British eighteenth-century and early nineteenth century history of political ideas and cultural history. I have undertaken research on the English response to the French Revolution, popular radicalism and loyalism; Politicisation and identity and radical ‘citizens of the world’ in the 1790s; Linguistic usage and digital history; and Popular attitudes to monarchy within the Hanoverian era. At present I am working on a book to be published in the Routledge, Enlightenment World Series, working title Henry Redhead Yorke, Colonial Radical: Politics and Identity in the Atlantic World, 1790-1813.
