I joined the School of History in 2005, having begun work for the University in 1982 at an adult education centre it ran in Middlesbrough. In 1994 I transferred to the Leeds campus, teaching History in the School of Continuing Education (where, among other things, I was the Chair, 2002-2005). 

My research interests are varied but centre on British popular culture and politics, primarily in the nineteenth century. For further details click on Research in the menu to the left.
