I am a cultural historian of memory, race and immigration in Britain and France. I am currently a lecturer in French Studies and have been at the University of Westminster since 2016. I joined the university after finishing my PhD, entitled 'Revisiting Silence: The Memory of Colonialism in Britain and France, 1960-2015', at Queen Mary University of London.
I teach on undergraduate French language and culture modules across all levels. My teaching covers 19th- and 20th century French history, issues of memory and immigration as well as critical race and postcolonial theories.
My research examines the memory of colonialism in Britain and France. It explores the creation of memory cultures in both society and the ways different actors incited public debates about coming to terms with the history of colonial domination in the former metropoles. Some of my more specific interests include immigration politics, race and connections between activism and memory, particularly anti-racism and far-right activism.
