Charlie Knight is a Postgraduate Researcher at the Parkes Institute for the Study of Jewish/non-Jewish Relations at the University of Southampton and is the recipient of the Wolfson Postgraduate Scholarship in the Humanities. 

His research broadly concerns German-Jewish refugees in Britain during the 1930s and 1940s, and histories of the Holocaust. He is interested in the correspondence between those that fled and those that remained in Nazi occupied Europe before and during the war. He is interested in histories of migration, histories of knowledge, histories of the epistolary and histories of the Holocaust more generally.

He was recently selected as a fellow at the Summer Institute for the Study of the Holocaust and Jewish Civilisation at the Holocaust Research Institute at Royal Holloway, University of London, where he joined scholars from around the world discussing current research in Holocaust Studies. 

He has published numerous blog posts with the BAHS, EHRI, IHR and the Parkes Institute and has given papers at conferences in the UK and Germany. Charlie is a member of the 'Migrant Knowledge' International Network based at the German Historical Institute Washington.
