I am Reader in History and a member of the History department.

I was awarded a British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship 2018-19 for 'The history of public space in England, 1700-2000'.

I have published widely on the history of 18th and 19th century protest, including Luddites, Swing rioters, Chartists, political prisoners, political clothing, and protesters' use of landscape.

I am a founder of the inter-disciplinary research network Rural Modernism. We have been awarded two AHRC Research Networking grants as part of the NERC Landscape Decisions: Towards a new framework for using land assets programme. Our two connected projects are 'Decommissioning the 20th century' and 'Planning Creativity'. Follow our progress on In 2020-21, we are working with local communities to consider the policy implications for decommissioned energy landscapes and their future heritage.

I am now moving into a larger research field, and have published an article in Rural History (2019) on the public inquiries into the Super Grid power network in the 1950s. My forthcoming publications will examine the history of Keep Britain Tidy and residents' attitudes towards the Pennine countryside. 







I am from Rochdale in Lancashire. I read Modern History at St. John's College, Oxford, and taught at the universities of Oxford, Bath Spa and Edinburgh before joining Hertfordshire in 2009. I served as Acting Head of History in 2014.
