I specialise in history and art, with a particular focus on eighteenth-century Britain. My current projects are Mike Leigh’s forthcoming feature film on JMW Turner, the early history and art of London’s Foundling Hospital and a narrative history of the ’45 Jacobite Rebellion for Bloomsbury Publishing.
For upcoming events, including conferences, see under News and Events.
My article ‘The mere relation of the sufferings of others: Joseph Highmore (1692-1780), History Painting and the Foundling Hospital’ is now available online at http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com
The short films I produced on JMW Turner, John Constable, James Ward and Bill Viola for the Tate ‘Art and the Sublime’ AHRC project are now online http://www.tate.org.uk/art/research-publications/the-sublime/films-r1141202
