About Me

A doctoral candidate at the University of Oxford, funded by the Leverhulme Trust and the Department of Politics and International Relations, my research recovers and evaluates the international thinking of historical women in the United States academy from 1919 to 1959. Focused on the interconnected, critical mass of largely Eastern institutions, especially women’s colleges and historically black colleges and universities, it uses extensive archival research in the US to find thinkers and analyse their work, both published and unpublished. In 2019-20 I held the Joan Challinor Award at the Schlesinger Library, Harvard.

Previously I read History at Cambridge and an MA in International Relations at Sussex.
