Who Am I?

I’m Professor of Youth History at Manchester Metropolitan University. I’ve been involved in several history-based community engagement projects with local communities in North West England, all of which emphasise the importance of participants telling their own stories. 

Returning Home

Returning Home, the latest of these community-based projects, is encouraging participants and their families to explore creatively and historically childhood experiences of health holidays spent with foster families in Switzerland after the Second World War.

Returning Home will be evolving over the next few months as we work with families and collect new stories and material, so keep checking in to see what we’re up to.
