Current Projects: 

I am currently working on writing an emotional history of Britain’s Cold War and its experience with Nuclear Weapons. My project is informed by original oral history interviews from those living in urban communities in the UK during the Cold War. In particular, I am interested in feelings of nuclear anxiety and nuclear fear. It is hoped that this project contributes to wider nuclear history, modern British history, and the history of emotions.
