My research focuses on the First World War, and in particular the different and differing ways the war is remembered and commemorated, particularly in British culture. At the moment I am experimenting with different ways of both conducting my research and indeed presenting it – I am using conventional essay writing, diaries, autobiographical writing, poetry, prose and photography. Overall, I am interested in what kind of legacy the First World War has left us, and in turn what kind of legacy we will leave for the First World War.
I completed my BA and MA degrees at Lancaster University, and currently hold a fee-waiver bursary from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences for my PhD project.
I currently teach the Part I English Literature course ENGL100.
I presented a paper entitled '"From Scratch" - Palestine and the legacy of World War I' at the international conference 'Aftermath: The Cultural Legacies of World War I', held at King's College London 21-23 May 2015.
