I am a writer and historian, with research interests in twentieth-century Europe and the US. My doctoral thesis examined the women's liberation movement of the 1960s and 1970s in transnational perspective through a case study of the links between the movements in the US, UK, and France. I surveyed archival material and conducted life history interviews with activists in all three countries to trace theory, protest tactics, and organisational ideas which spread across national borders. The collection of interviews will be available in future at the British Library. I also write fiction; my debut novel, The Ninth Guest (published in North America as The Last Guest) was published in 2020.
