I would be happy to speak to the media about how I can contribute to press, radio or TV pieces. I am keen to use my expertise in history to help people understand current events. A knowledge of history allows us to set these events in context; with it we may comprehend and explain the world today.
In January 2015 I was interviewed by BBC Radio Wales and the Western Mail on the historical background to the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attacks in Paris (see ‘‘Terror attacks in France are “nothing new”, says academic’, Western Mail 10 January 2015, p. 5)
I have written several articles for the popular history magazine History Today, notably on the history of terrorism in France and the last French general election. You can access my articles here:
‘Terrorism in France’, History Today blog, 8 Jan. 2015
‘The death of Clément Méric foretold’, History Today, August 2013, 3-4.
‘In the shadow of the ‘dark years’, History Today, 62.6, June 2012, 4.
