I am a global historian with particular interests in the First World War, Germany’s global entanglements, and Public History. My latest monograph is entitled ‘Enemies in the Empire. Civilian Internment in the British Empire during the First World War’ (Oxford University Press, 2020). A monograph on German diasporic nationalism during the nineteenth century was named a CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title (Routledge, 2014). Research and impact activities have been funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), the British Academy, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and the Gerda Henkel Foundation. I am currently Principal Investigator of an AHRC-funded project entitled 'South Africa in World War I: Digital and Virtual Experiences’. I am a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, a visiting Research Associate at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, and a member of the AHRC Peer Review College.
