Teaching

I teach a range of modules on contemporary European history for the undergraduate History degree, notably a level III Special Subject on popular and DIY cultures in contemporary British history ("Post-punk Britain"), co-taught with Lucy Robinson; and a final year Past and Present module "Resistance and History", which explores resistance as an interdisicplinary category of historical analysis across a range of times and places, and assesses the value of histrorical appraocehs for contextualising contemporary understandings of resistance.

In recent years, I have taught a Special Subject on May 1968 in Paris, Past and Present Options ("Age and History"; "Consumption and History"), and on the level III Thematic option "The Sixties" (with Lucy Robinson), as well as a Historical Controversy module to first year students (on Robert Paxton's Vichy France). I have taught the "Historical Skills and Methods" module offered to all postgraduate students on the History MA programmes, for which I also offered the "Germany, France and the Making of Twentieth Century Europe" module (co-taught with Martin Evans). I have also taught modules to programmes outside the History department, notably on popular culture in France, and on the role of memory in contemporary European societies.
