I’m a cultural historian with an interest in all things 1900. I worked for several years at the University of Bristol (UK), but I am now based at the University of Groningen (Netherlands).
This blog was originally inspired by my British Academy funded research project. Sometimes it is linked to my academic work, but mainly the blog features all the random, weird facts and trivia related to Belle Époque media culture that I find on my journey through archives. News, gossip, literature, art, politics, sport, advertising: newspapers and magazines offer a fascinating insight into the period between 1880 and 1914. At least that’s how I feel.
For those interested in my more academic stuff, look on Academia.edu here.
