Research Fellow, Faculty of Social Sciences
Jake's research interests concern the historical and political geographies of twentieth century internationalism, pacifism, anti-colonialism and African American history.
He is currently working on a four-year AHRC project (2015-19) with Stephen Legg and Mike Heffernan entitled 'Conferencing the international: a cultural and historical geography of the origins of internationalism (1919-1939)'. The grant studies a range of key conferences which took place between the wars. As part of the project Jake is working on a book-length account of the Pan-African Congress.
Jake is also Newsletter Editor for the RGS-IBG Historical Geography Research Group and serves on the editorial board of Geography Compass.
Jake's previous research has examined the intersections between the civil rights movement, various anti-colonial movements and the radical peace movement. He completed a PhD in 2014 entitled "Bayard Rustin and the Historical Geographies of Radical Pacifism" (examined by David Featherstone and Alex Vasudevan).
