Current research

My work takes me across a number of different fields that intersect with an interest and research expertise in Holocaust studies and education, Post-war Britain, museums and public history, film and television studies, history, race and racism. I am currently researching how the Holocaust has been reported, depicted and imagined by the BBC (news broadcast, current affairs and magazine programmes, dramas and documentaries on radio and television). This emerged from an initial project looking at the role and representation of Jews and Jewishness at the BBC.
