Research

PhD topic: "Don't be an 'Ugly American'": the US Passport Office and Cold War government of travel, 1955-77.

My project is concerned broadly with the US’ government of travel during the Cold War, and specifically with the role of the Passport Office and its longstanding director Frances Knight (1955-77) in shaping both policy approaches to, and popular narratives about, the travel of Americans.

Supervisors: Alan Ingram (primary) and Tariq Jazeel (secondary).

This project is primarily funded by the Economic and Social Research Council; my archival research in Washington, DC was facilitated by a six-month Fellowship at the Library of Congress, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

I am currently undertaking an Overseas Institutional Visit at Carleton University, supervised by William Walters and funded by the ESRC.
