Personal profile

Research interests

As of 1 August 2023 I am leading the Stuart Hall Archive Project: Conjunctures, Dialogues, Readings, with Prof Pat Noxolo and Assoc. Prof Rebecca Roach. This three year research project uses the papers of Prof Stuart Hall to recover unpublished material to provide insights on Hall's cultural and political formation and development, and to create forums and platforms for a wide engagement with Hall's work and legacies.

Since 2021 I have been an Affiliated Researcher on the Translating Ferro/Transforming Knowledge international research project to translate the writings of Brazilian architect Sergio Ferro into English for the first time, and to provide the basis for a new field of research - Production Studies.

My main research interests include the professional, technical, and cultural histories of modern architecture; histories of the New Left and cultural studies; and the history of London.
