My research focuses on war, gender, memory, and the environment in modern European history, focusing especially on the First World War. In my master’s thesis, I looked at debates over the value of cavalrymen in the British army during the first half of the twentieth century. Specifically, I used these discussions to examine how class-based ideas of manliness shaped British army tactics.
