Professor of History and Director of the Centre for Historical Research, University of Limerick

I came to the University of Limerick as Professor of History in March 2002, after many years of teaching at the university of St Andrews. Over the years I have also held visiting professorships in the universities of Hamburg and Michigan, Ann Arbor. My research interests are in the social, cultural and political history of Germany in the twentieth century, and I welcome postgraduates with an interest in Germany in the twentieth century.
