I am a twentieth-century cultural historian interested in emotions, class and everyday life. My doctoral thesis examines the role of humour in the occupational health and wellbeing of dock workers in Liverpool and Glasgow 1964-89. This blog is a space where I can explore my thoughts whilst I am researching. Hopefully, this will help me to focus, reflect and conjure new ideas. I also believe that writing history requires the use of the historian’s emotions and so I think that it is only fair that mine can be accessed.
