    Research Interests

    I research political protest movements, radical political violence, and political activism, and write 'histories from below' of left-wing movements.

    I am a cultural historian who does NOT work in extremism studies, security studies, or 'prevent', nor do I accept any funds from security organisations or government intelligence bodies. My work seeks to understand movements 'from below' rather than to enforce political or government agendas onto movements. 

    Previous studies include a history and political theory of Autonomie in Germany, particularly Hamburg's squatted Rote Flora. I have also worked extensively on political philosophies related to these areas, as well as radical histories of the 1970s-90s. My current work looks at the history of the Antifascist movement in Europe and North America. 

    Currently I am co-organising the 'Worldwide Antifascism Research Network' (WARN), as well as the 'European Antifascism Research Network' (EARN).

    At CTPSR I co-lead the 'Social Movements and Contentious Politics' theme, and supervise graduate students working on topics related to Antifascism from a scholarly (not security studies) angle.
