Location: A1.03

I am a Senior Lecturer in Education Studies in the School of Education. I joined the School as Research Fellow, in 2007, before becoming a Senior Lecturer in 2009. I am Postgraduate Research Tutor for the School of Education. I also teach on the MA Education,  and supervise research students working towards their MPhil/PhD and EdD. My key research and teaching interests relate to the history of education and childhood, with a focus on themes of secularism, and war and peace. From 2014-2019 I was one of three editors of a peer-reviewed journal, History of Education, and in 2020 I was appointed Hon. Secretary of the History of Education Society (UK). I am currently research group lead of the School of Education's 'Humanistic Perspectives' research group.
