    Research

    Multiple, linked research projects

    My earliest research was in German labour and gender history and the history of youth and social policy. My most recent work has has three strands: Romani Studies, with particular reference to the experience of German Sinti in the Holocaust; black people in Germany since the 19th century and the politics of anticolonialism; and middle-class culture, gender and finance in 18th-century Germany. In 18th-century studies, I have moved from unearthing the origins of life insurance to exploring what Germans knew about stocks and shares in the early days of global capitalism. My research in Romani, Black and Holocaust studies is linked with a personal commitment to outreach and knowledge exchange. It also involves me in collaborations with colleagues in France, Germany, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, the US and South Korea.
