I received my BA in History from the University of Liverpool and my postgraduate study (MPhil and PhD) was undertaken at the University of Birmingham. My research and teaching interests are in twentieth century US history, with a particular focus on political and diplomatic history.
In this film Dr Andrew Johnstone talks about his research interests on 20th-century US foreign policy.
Twentieth century US political and diplomatic history; the Presidency of Franklin Roosevelt, particularly World War II; the US and the Vietnam War.
My teaching focuses on 20th Century US History, and I have previously taught modules including American History from 1877 to the Present, US Foreign Policy, the USA and the Vietnam War, and the Presidency of Franklin D Roosevelt. I also contribute to team-taught American Studies modules on The West and The City.
