I am a social-cultural historian of race and gender, with a focus on Black women’s histories in Britain and the Anglo-Caribbean. I am interested in the everyday ways people oppressed within society negotiate and navigate structures of power and inequality, as well as the legacies and politics of writing such histories within contemporary society.
Histories of race and gender
My current research focuses on the life of an Afro-Jamaican women in late eighteenth-century Jamaica and Britain and the archival remnants of her life. I am also currently developing a community-engaged project which looks at the history of Black mothering in Britain and the use of creative storytelling. Both projects draw upon my interest in community-engaged and Caribbean research methodologies.
