M.Phil. in US History

Before starting MPhil in US History at Oxford (Exeter) in 2020, I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Bristol where I read History and received first-class honours. My third-year dissertation chiefly dealt with gender dynamics in Britain’s Black Power Movement, a topic that inspired much of my current research. I am currently co-convenor of the TORCH programme Race and Resistance and I also run an informal reading called ‘Dissident Histories’. I am currently co-writing a chapter on anti-racism and museum practices in Bristol for the upcoming publication: Whose Heritage? Challenging Race and Identity in Stuart Hall’s Post-nation Britain (2021). My interest in heritage has led me to work with institutions and organisations such as Historic England, DCMS, English Heritage, BBC Bristol, Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, and Bristol Museums.
