PhD supervision

I would welcome enquiries from students interested in writing dissertations and theses on topics that would fall under the following headings: history of travel and/or tourism; history of the English Lake District; historical geography; landscape history; history of national parks


My research is primarily concerned with 18th- and 19th-century cultural and environmental history, and I have particular scholarly interest in print history, as well as in travel writing and topographical literature. My current research projects include Geospatial Innovation in the Digital Humanities: A Deep Map of the English Lake District (2015–2018), which is funded by the Leverhulme Trust. In addition, I co-edit the Digital Forum for the Journal of Victorian Culture.

Current Teaching

I contribute to teaching across the UG and PG curriculum, and I currently convene HIST199: 'Lancaster: A Place in Space and Time'HIST250: 'The Nature and Practice of History' and HIST434: 'Critical Heritage Studies'. In addition, I oversee the Department's MA placement programme, including HIST491: 'Heritage and Public History Placement' and HIST495: 'School Placement'.



I am a Fellow of The Higher Education Academy.
