Personal profile


Lindsey is a Senior Lecturer in Modern European History at the University of Huddersfield. She joined the history department in January 2012 after temporary teaching posts in History and in French Studies at the Universities of Reading, Nottingham and Westminster.

Lindsey gained a First Class Honours degree in History with French and European Studies from the University of Sussex in 2000, and then went on to take the MA in Life History Research: Oral History and Mass Observation, also at Sussex. Her dissertation was on working-class grammar school girls in the 1950s, and used oral history to examine the cultural and social reproduction of class and gender through the grammar school system. She then went on to work in reminiscence at the Victoria and Albert Museum, and then spent two years in an editorial role at the Institute of Historical Research. She has also worked as an EFL teacher in Poland and Belgium, and taught Academic Study Skills at postgraduate level.

In 2007 she began a PhD entitled ‘Children under the Allied Bombs, France 1940-1945’ at the University of Reading and supervised by Professor Andrew Knapp and Dr Martin Parsons. Her research formed part of the ‘outstanding’ AHRC-funded project ‘Bombing, States and Peoples in Western Europe, 1940-1945’, involving the Universities of Reading, Exeter and Newcastle. The project looked comparatively at air war in France, Italy, Germany and the UK. She was awarded her doctorate in 2011.
