About Me

My interdisciplinary research explores the relationship between media and politics in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. I am particularly interested in the formation and evolution of national questions and how those are articulated and covered by the news media. My thesis and upcoming monograph, ‘Miserable conflict and confusion’: the Irish Question in British Newspapers, 1916-22, examines British national press coverage of Ireland from the aftermath of the Easter Rising to the signing and ratification of the Anglo-Irish Treaty.
