My research focuses on postcolonial history, looking in particular at the end of Britain's empire. At present I am writing a three-volume history entitled Memories of Empire; the first volume, The White Man's World, won the Longman-History Today prize for 2013. I also work on historiographical questions concerning the conceptual underpinnings of postcolonial history, and on the relations between history and memory.
