Public Talks

I believe historians cannot operate alone or in an ‘ivory tower’ and so outreach to others and groups not connected to historical research should be a fundamental undertaking for every historian. In addition to the numerous publically accessible blogs and media interviews I have given, below is list of my previous public engagements.

I welcome any suggestions for potential collaboration, please feel free to contact me.


Vienna Humanities Festival 2017, Vienna

Following an invitation from the Festival Director Matti Bunzl, I talked on the theme “The American Revolution … and Austria” in front of a large non-specialist audience on Saturday 23rd September 2017. The theme of that year’s festival was ‘Revolution!’ which accurately reflected the overarching theme of my historical interest.

Austrian-American Society / Österreichische-Amerikanische Gesellschaft, Vienna

Following an invitation by ÖAG Programme Director Vic Huber, I presented an hour-long overview of my research into early US-Habsburg relations interested members and guests of the Society in the Vienna Clubhouse. An engaging Q&A followed and I have since been invited to give a multi-part lecture series in the near future.

Transatlantic Seminar Series, School of Social and Political Science at Edinburgh

Following an invitation by the Transatlantic Seminar organiser Prof. John Peterson, I presented the open lecture ‘The American Revolution – What Are We Missing?’ which you can view online. The audience was a mixture of politics students and the general public.
