I'm the chair of the Center for the Study of the Legacies of British Slave-Ownership and a former profesor of History at UCL.

My research has been concerned with questions of Britain and its Empire. In particular, I focused on both the connected histories of Britain and Jamaica, and on the history of writing as central to the ways in which the story of Empire is told. In general, I've been preoccupied with trying to write a different story of the history of Empire.
