DPhil in Politics
Research Interests: Racial campaign strategies.
My main research focus is on race and democracy in the United States. In particular, I am interested in how African Americans' access to political power in the United States can be understood as part of a process of democratisation. My research includes studies of campaign politics, racial policy, party polarisation, and political institutions.
I am also interested in British party politics, with a focus on the Labour Party. I have written about party activism, internal party democracy, history and policy, political institutions, and traditions of British socialist thought.
