Research Interests

Research Themes

My research centres mainly on gender and imperialism in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, in particular the interactions between British women and the British Empire.  I also have a research interest in the history of sport in the British armed forces. 


Current Research Projects

My current project is a study of British women and imperial politics in the era of  'high imperialism', focusing on the South African War of 1899-1902.   The South African War in British Women's History is contracted to Manchester University Press and will appear in its Studies in Imperialism Series.  It is funded by a British Academy Small Grant.
