Accepting PhD Students
I am happy to discuss supervision of postgraduate research in the areas of German post-war social, economic and political history. Possible topics in this wide field can include Allied occupation policy; attitudes and politics of German social networks or interest groups (such as industrialists or refugees); or topics investigating economic and business matters. I am currently supervising a PhD investigating German Trade Unions and their involvement in Jean Monnet’s Action Committee for the United States of Europe and a PhD investigating the politics and policies of aircraft procurement of the first Wilson government in 1964-66; I'm also co-supervisor of a PhD into the Luftwaffe pilot training, 1933-1945. A previous co-supervision into the Verein der deutschen Eisenbahnverwaltungen 1835-1914 (association of German railway administrations) was completed successfully in early 2020 with the award of a PhD..
