…ductive labor for the struggle for survival, in hiding places and partisan formations, and how these efforts were subsequently erased in the construction of the Soviet war portrayal.
The work is part of a growing attention to the Nazi genocide in the occupied Soviet territories and the social dynamics associated with war and genocide. Foregrounding questions of identity and memory, the book contributes to understanding the problems and strategies of minority and displaced groups to attain social inclusion.
Many oral history interviews that I conducted for this project are available online for further research. Please visit the Bel…

I am a scholar of religious history with a particular interest in the intersected histories of Christian missions, European imperialism, and the growth of Christianities in Sub-Saharan Africa in the 19th and 20th centuries. I am intrigued by the religious and cultural exchanges between European missionaries and those who converted, with a focus upon the agency of African peoples. My first book, Living Salvation in the East African Revival in Uganda, which is forthcoming with the University of Rochester Press, is a history of the East African (Balokole) Revival in Uganda from the early 1930s to the early 1960s. While the revival was a conversionary movement that proclaimed a Christian message of salvation, this project examines the ways in which salvation was not simply a personal, eternal aspiration for the Balokole, but rather a comprehensive way of life. This book will illuminate the many ways in which the revival created a new lifestyle for those who converted through its message, which had profound impacts upon revivalists’ understanding of themselves and how they ought to relate to their families, communities, societies, and nations.

I am Professor of Modern European History at the University of Southampton, G.B., where I have worked since 1994.   My research has ranged widely over the business, social, and cultural history of the twentieth century; at its core is the project of thinking through the place of the Third Reich in the longer history of Germany and Europe’s twentieth century and, in particular, of embedding histories of the Holocaust in wider narratives of modern German and European history.  My most recent project focusses on the cultural history of art music in C20th Germany, in connection with which I am writing a book on the institution of the symphony concert in Nazi Germany.
