I am an art historian based in Cork, Ireland. I gained a PhD at University College Cork in 2017 with a thesis entitled The Memorialisation of World War I in the Work of Otto Dix, 1914-1933.
My research focuses on the impact of war on visual culture since World War I, particularly Germany from 1914 to 1945, representations of masculinity in war and the relationship between politics, society and the work of art in relation to memorialisation/memoriography.
I regularly present my work at public events, academic conferences and seminars. Current research includes a book based on my doctoral research, investigations into the art of Käthe Kollwitz and the textile anti-war art of Australian artist Jenny Bowker. I am also working with Cork-based artist Ben Reilly to develop our linked investigations into memory and traumatised landscapes.
I am a member of the German Studies Association, the Association of Art Historians (UK) and a committee member of the Western Front Association, a UK and Ireland-based organisation that works to stimulate interest in the period 1914-18.
I am interested in collaborating on projects relating to my research interests outlined above.
