Research Interests:
My broad research area is French and British political and social history between 1880 and 1914. My research focuses on the history of French political exiles in Britain and anarchist transnationalism between 1880 and 1914, with a focus on ideological and political transfers, experiences of political exile, the asylum question in the long nineteenth century as well as the history of terrorism.
My second main interest is the history of transnational print culture, with a focus on foreign-language publications printed in Britain in the late 19th century, until 1914. I recently co-edited the volume The Foreign-Language Press in London. Politics from a Distance (Bloomsbury, 2018).
