Current research is specifically concerned with the history of St Helena, a British Overseas Territory in the South Atlantic. I also retain an on-going interest in the history of Gibraltar, the publicity campaigns of the Empire Marketing Board, and migration and settlement into and around the British Empire and Commonwealth, including the dispatch overseas as child migrants of children in care in the UK.

Career Details

BA (Hons) Modern History, Wadham College, Oxford, 1968; D.Phil, Nuffield College, Oxford, 1984. I joined the History Department, Lancaster University, in 1971, retiring as Emeritus Professor of Modern British History in 2010. For three years I was Head of Department. I was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society in 1985.

My undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and my research student supervision mainly concerned British and British Empire history since c.1750.

Historical research and attending conferences, particularly overseas, can be expensive, and I am pleased to record here my gratitude for generous assistance from the British Academy, the Canadian Studies Faculty Research Program, the Arts and Humanities Research Board, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the Scouloudi Foundation, and Lancaster University, particularly the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
