Doctoral Training

  • Since 2017 I have organised a medieval PhD reading group for students at Birkbeck, covering methodological and theoretical readings relevant to a broad understanding of the medieval world
  • In 2018-19 I co-organised with Dr Kat Hill (Birkbeck) a CHASE-funded doctoral training programme on ‘Objects in space, subjects in time: the material cultures of postcolonial history‘. This involved workshops heritage institutions across London, including the British Library, the British Museum, and the Victoria & Albert Museum.

External Examining

  • I have been invited to act as external examiner of one PhD thesis, on Byzantine numismatics, by the University of Birmingham in 2017.
