My research centres on the life of outsider groups in nineteenth and twentieth-century Britain, the United States and Germany. I am particularly interested in the history of the unemployed, blind people, prisoners of war, and people of African descent. I have also done research on political cartoons and advertising, and have a strong interest in social stereotypes and social movements.
