Until my retirement I specialized in the post-medieval history of east-central Europe, especially the lands of the Habsburg Monarchy and developments since 1918 in east-central Europe. I still have a number of doctoral students in this general field, and am willing to accept new ones. Nowadays my main research areas are local history, Welsh history, and ecological history. I also retain an interest in historical sociolinguistics. Please explore my recent publications, which include a volume of essays entitled Austria, Hungary, and the Habsburgs. Central Europe, c. 1683-1867, a number of (co-)edited books, and a range of articles.
