Research and Publications

I have particular interests in Oral History as an active member of the Oral History Society’s LGBT Oral History Group,  Public History and the communication of diverse histories to wide audiences. I am currently undertaking an MRes in Queer History at Goldsmiths College and I am a member of the London Metropolitan Archives' LGBTQ+ stakeholders group.
