Having completed a BA in  French and German (Oxford) and then a more interdisciplinary MA in French Studies (Sussex),  I moved into history (still at Sussex)  to do a DPhil in French labour history. I have been at Loughborough since 1986,  and my research area, broadly speaking, is the history of the Left and of  labour movements in the 20th century, particularly in France.  I have worked mostly on the French anarchist movement and ‘alternative left’, and am currently working on Daniel Guérin  (1904-88).

Having been involved for some years with the Journal of French Anarchist Movement - Dave BerryContemporary European Studies (formerly the Journal of Area Studies), I am currently an associate editor of the journal Anarchist Studies. I am a member of the CIRA (Centre International de Recherches sur l’Anarchisme), of the ASMCF (Association for the Study of Modern & Contemprary France) and of the ASN (Anarchist Studies Network, aka the Specialist Group for the Study of Anarchism within the Political Studies Association).‌
