Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, are interested in certain aspects of my work, would like me to give a talk at your institution, or simply want to connect. If you are a former student then drop me a line – I am always interested in what you might be up to. Thank you.

My dad took the photo above, as I hammer away at the Berlin Wall, in the summer of 1990.

Rotating header photos are my own (2014/2019). One set of them shows the equestrian statue in Windhoek after its removal, a battle site in Omaruru, the jetty in Swakopmund, and a view over Lüderitz; another set of photos shows a memorial on Shark Island and mass graves on the outskirts of Swakopmund. These photos are meant to portray the legacies and remnants of the empire – and that legacies of German colonialism in Southwest Africa sit on thousands of graves.
