Research supervision

I am happy to supervise students in the fields of African history and imperial/global history, and in particular those with an interest in the following areas:

  • histories of law
  • crime and punishment
  • violence
  • conflict and warfare
  • transitional justice and post-war reconciliation
  • human rights
  • histories of global humanitarianism
  • gender
  • childhood and youth


Research students

I currently supervise four doctoral candidates, who are working on the the political mobilization of Acholi identity in Northern Uganda, 1960-85; gender histories of nineteenth-century Abeokuta, Nigeria; domestic violence in colonial Kenya, and the women's militant resistance to apartheid in South Africa.
