About me

My research is focused on the dynamic relationship between the law and society. My particular interests include 18th and 19th century criminal justice and criminal justice heritage, the English Magistracy, social protest, and regional government. I am Associate Director of the Regional History Centre at UWE, and consultant historian for Shire Hall historic courthouse museum. As a collaborative practitioner I work with heritage organisations and external partners to engage public audiences with historic research in ways that are meaningful in the present. Both my historical research and practice-led research has informed specialist taught  modules on crime and criminal justice, public history and heritage in practice.
