I joined Manchester in 2000. Before that I was a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at Nottingham University (1996-99), a Fulbright Visiting Fellow at New York University (1997-98), and a lecturer at Staffordshire University (1999-2000). I held a Leverhulme Study Abroad Fellowship at Harvard (2004-05). From 2008-2011 I was Director of Postgraduate Education in the School of Arts, Histories and Cultures (SAHC).
