I am both a historian and a film maker and my overall career goal is to work in non-fiction production.
My research interests lie in Early Modern Europe, specifically the Tudor Period and how the repercussions of events/developments in the sixteenth century still cast a shadow in modern day Britain. I am especially interested in this age as the birth of what we in the modern day would call ‘PR campaigns’ and how the Reformation continued and solidified trends in Anglo culture and identity that separate its history from the continent.
I am currently in the research phase for my PhD thesis. The project, "Worldly Kingship: The Foreign and The Novel at the Court of Henry VIII," looks at self-fashioning in the court and reign of Henry VIII in a context of reformation and globalization.
