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 and the World Service. 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 and, most recently, a contributor to a BBC Radio 3 Sunday Feature on the author Laura Ingalls Widler.

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 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.
