I’m a public historian and Further Education Lecturer in History. I recently completed my PhD in History at Kingston University, where I worked on same-sex love and LGBTQ histories in public history. My thesis explored how museums, archives, historic houses, monuments and digital technology tell histories of same-sex love, sex and desire. I’m interested in all aspects of the histories of gender and sexuality, and how they intersect with public history and heritage.
I’m now Project Researcher on the Leeds Beckett/Historic England LGBTQ Heritage Project, ‘Pride of Place’. You can find out more about ‘Pride of Place’, and contribute to our crowdsourced map online.
I’ve also contributed posts to The Telegraph, The Culture Trip, NOTCHES: (re) marks on the history of sexuality, Emotional Objects: Touching Emotions in History and the University of Sheffield’s History Matters.
