Community and Business
I have made numerous appearances on local, national and international radio to provide historical context and political commentary on events in the United States. This includes BBC Radio Sussex, Radio 5 Live, the World Service and the Voice of Russia. I was also a guest on BBC Radio 4's In Our Time to discuss Harriet Beecher Stowe's famous anti-slavery novel Uncle Tom's Cabin.
In addition, I've contributed academic expertise for local and national television news programmes including appearances on BBC South Today and the BBC News Channel. My research on Anglo-American relations also recently led to an appearance on BBC 1's The One Show to provide historical commentary on the cinematic masterpiece A Matter of Life and Death.
My contributions to newspapers include articles comparing the contemporary world financial crisis with the Great Depression of the 1930s for the Guardian and an analysis of the history of mob violence against Mexicans in the United States for the New York Times.
