Reader in Environmental HistoryDepartment of History (Historical Studies)
I am an environmental historian with research interests in the polar regions, national parks and protected areas, and religion and the environment. I have worked extensively on the history of Antarctica, and I am a co-PI on the McMurdo Dry Valleys Long Term Ecological Research site in Antarctica. I am currently writing a book on the history of this region. As a member of the Public Lands History Centre at Colorado State University, I was closely involved with several projects on the history of US national parks. I am in the early stages of developing a project on the history of national parks in the United Kingdom. I have recently started a course at Sarum College in Salisbury to become a self-supporting minister in the Church of England. Alongside this training I’m developing an interest in histories of religion and the environment.
Please get in touch if you might be interested in pursuing a research degree in any of my areas of research interest.
DescriptionI am working with two co-authors (a glaciologist and a geographer) on a book-length project on the environmental history of the McMurdo Dry Valleys. The intended publication date is 2022.
