Profile-Pic.jpgI am a historian of Modern Imperial Britain, and I am particularly interested in the conjuncture produced by social democracy and decolonization. I am writing a book on engagements between migrants to Britain from the decolonizing empire and social workers, examining how these interactions transformed older, imperial frameworks of community and difference into contemporary multiculturalism. In 2014, I published "Performing Multiculturalism: The Commonwealth Arts Festival of 1965" in The Journal of British Studies.

I received my PhD in 2013 from the University of California, Berkeley, and I joined the Reed faculty in 2014 as Assistant Professor of History and Humanities. At Reed, I offer courses in British, Imperial, and twentieth century history and I also teach in the college’s interdisciplinary Humanities Program.
