I am very interested in public engagement. My research has been featured across the BBC, including the Today programme, World At One, and Newshour as well as online. You can see an example here. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-45576262I assisted in curating the exhibition From Sappho to Suffrage: Women Who Dared at the Bodleian Library, Oxford, including creating a resource pack for schools using the collection material. I have addressed audiences ranging from school children to city workers on the historical significance and contemporary legacy of the suffrage campaign. I'd be delighted to talk with you about any aspect of women and British politics - especially suffrage or Labour politics - over the past two centuries.
