Academic subject(s): 
History
  • Core subject area: Modern European and world history.
  • Teaching: European and World History from the French Revolution to the 1970s. I teach a Special Subject on France in the 1930s and the Second World War; and a Further Subject on Cold War popular culture. I supervise research students with interests predominantly in European history of the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s.    
  • Research interests: I recently completed a large monograph on Belgium after the Second World War, and have also published recently on a number of themes relating to the broader history of Europe in the 20th century, notably a book on political legitimacy in 20th-century Europe and another one on the Europeanisation of Europe across the 20th century. My current project is a history of democracy in post-1945 Western Europe.
