A native of Barnsley, England, I crossed the Pennines to pursue my studies in Manchester. I subsequently crossed the Atlantic to French Guiana and, most recently, here to the US. I have researched and taught in History and Sociology at the University of Manchester, the University of York and the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona. In 2017, I joined French and Francophone Studies at UConn, where I teach courses in Francophone Studies, French literature and modern and contemporary French politics, culture and society.
I have published work in journals including Modern and Contemporary France and my first book, Locating Guyane, co-edited with Dr Catriona MacLeod, will be published in April 2018 by Liverpool University Press.
