Supervision and teaching
Areas of research supervision
I am happy to supervise research students in most areas of 19th-century and 20th-century Italy, especially students interested in the history of nationalism and of the Mezzogiorno. I would also be happy to supervise work on political rituals and symbolism, and on hero and leadership cults in modern Europe.
If you are interested in pursuing research in any of these areas, you should first read our advice on how to apply for MPhil/PhD research before submitting an application.
I teach courses on 19th- and 20th-century European history, on Italian nationalism, and on historiography and historical methodology. I am also the director of the MA in Historical Research.
