Thesis title: 'Save the Children!; Constructing an International Humanitarian Movement in Interwar Britain'.
My research focuses on the British Save the Children Fund, and the wider national and international humanitarian movement within which it operated, in the interwar years. I am interested in the interaction between British humanitarian organizations and the League of Nations, the intersection of nationalism, internationalism and imperialism, and the relationship between ideas about charity and politics in interwar British society.
