History of Parliament Research

I joined the History in September 2012, and I am primarily responsible for the History's website, social media and communications. I am also hoping to develop the History's education section and work on the oral history project.

Research and Publications

My research interests are wide and varied! In my previous role I worked as a Research Associate at the Marylebone Cricket Club Museum, running 'Taking the Field', an oral history project that is creating a collection of digital stories on the importance of grassroots cricket clubs to their communities in the UK and Sri Lanka. Before joining MCC, I completed a PhD in International History at the London School of Economics on 'The Western Allies in Berlin, 1945-48: Relations at the Ground Level' and I currently still teach at the LSE.

My major publications include:

- 'Blaina Cricket Club and Taking the Field', Introduction to Small Club, Big History: The History of Blaina Cricket Club, Dr Andrew Hignell, (St David's Press), 2012

- 'Taking the Field: Telling the Story of Grassroots Cricket', Cricket Society Journal (April 2012)

- 'The Role of Britain in the Berlin Airlift,' History 95, Issue 318 (April 2010), 207-224
