PhD projects

Matt Houlbrook works on the cultural history of 20th century Britain, with a particular interest in gender, sexualities and selfhood. His earlier research explored the relationship between the city, social practice and sexual identities - how modern urban culture shaped the ways in which men and women experienced, organised and understood their sexual desires and practices.

Professor Houlbrook is happy to supervise research postgraduates working on areas of modern British history relating to his own research interests.
