After completing my PhD at Bristol, I undertook a 2-year Teaching and Research Fellowship with the university’s Politics department and then joined the American Studies department at the West London Institute from 1991-99. From 1999 to 2006, I taught on the American Studies programme at Brunel University, after which I became a member of the Department of Politics and History.
