I'm a historian of contemporary Britain, recently having completed my AHRC-funded PhD on the role of the Labour Party in the urban transformation of Britain between 1945-70.  I'm especially interested in the governance of the private rented sector post-1939, the influence of interest groups on post-war housing policy and conceptions of 'community' throughout the post-war period.
