Projects per year
I am a social and cultural historian of late twentieth-century Britain. My research interests include race, immigration, the New Left, cultural studies, urban history, sex work and photography, and I have published on these areas in Social History, History Workshop Journal, Patterns of Prejudice, Twentieth Century British History and other journals. I am the co-editor of Cultural Studies 50 Years On (2016) and my first monograph - Black Handsworth: race in 1980s Britain - was published by the University of California Press in 2019 and shortlisted for the Whitfield Prize. I have curated several public exhibitions, including Janet Mendelsohn: Varna Road at the Ikon Gallery in 2016. My research has been supported by Arts Council England, the Arts and Humanities Research Council and, most recently, the Fulbright Commission.
