Research overview <div>I am really interested in how ideas about history and heritage inform notions of identity. My research in that area has tended to focus on the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, especially in relation to Sxcotland and Wales. Click the&#39;publications&#39; tab for details</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Recently, however, I won a&pound;37,500 grant from UKRI to work with community members in the South Wales Valley in exploring their own sense of heritage and identity through the creative arts. This project is called&#39;BG Reach&#39; (Blaenau Gwent Residents Engaging in Arts, Community and Heritage), and will culminate in an interactive echibition to be toured around Wales and beyond.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>I am strongly committed to taking research beyond academia. In 2018 I&nbsp;founded the OU History Lecture Series,&nbsp;which opens a window onto the exciting research being conducted by historians at the Open University.&nbsp;I have also written for various newspapers, magazines and websites, made radio appearances, and delivered numerous public lectures and workshops.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div>
