Research interests

I am currently continuing my work on the First World War in British and Global History

I'm in the final phases of a new short history of the war to be published by Oxford University Press and have recently contributed a chapter on 'Religion and Belief' to the new Cambridge Encyclopaedia of the war

I am also planning to develop an interdisciplinary research group on war, peace and religion in Oxford.
