PhD Student in History
EHESS Paris (email)
I am a PhD student at the EHESS Paris working under the joint supervision of Christophe Prochasson (EHESS Paris) and John Horne (Trinity College Dublin) on military interpreters and more generally on languages in Allied coalition warfare during the First World War. I am currently writing up and hope to be finished in the spring of 2013. More information on this research and other projects I am involved with can be found in the research section of this website.
I am half British, half German and after secondary school in Germany and a B.A. in England I have now been living and working in Paris for the past seven years, first spending three years at the École Normale Supérieure while gaining a Masters in history at the EHESS (obtained in 2007), and then working towards my PhD.
I hold French research ministry funding for the work on my PhD and that includes teaching duties at the EHESS where I have taught both German and Anglo-American Historiography seminars, as well as general methodology courses. I have also taught I.T. skills to budding historians in various settings. See the blog I run jointly with Emilien Ruiz: La boîte à outils des historiens [in French].
