Personal profile

My PhD thesis entitled, 'British Colonial Violence in Perak, Sierra Leone and the Sudan', explores three cases of British colonial warfare in the second half of the nineteenth century (completed 2017). 

My work explores Britain's relationship with extreme violence both within and beyond the British Empire and also examines British colonial violence within a wider framework of both European genocidal violence in twentieth-century European warfare and the Holocaust. I am currently working on an article entitled, 'Viewing Violence in the British Empire', based on photographs from the Anglo-Egyptian Reconquest of the Sudan (1896-9).
