Research Interests

I am interested in how classical and medieval ignorance and mythology surrounding the 'East', led Europeans to explore, colonise and ultimately migrate to Africa and Asia. Additionally, my research explores how the societies Europeans attempted to build in their colonies, closely mirrored those imagined within the pre-conceptional mythology of earlier eras.
