David is Senior Lecturer in North American History and Programme Convenor for the History Department at Cardiff University. He received his PhD from the University of Warwick in 2013. David has published widely on histories of slavery, with his forthcoming monograph addressing how aging affected the dynamics of slavery, and the identities of enslaver and enslaved alike, in the US South. His new research project is moving towards a broader historiographical, theoretical, and methodological consideration of age as a category of analysis and a personal and public identity, where he aims to explore the social and cultural meanings invested in aging and the life-course, and to underline the role age plays in shaping power relations in the UK and US. He is keen to work with – and learn from – academics and external stakeholders interested in age and intergenerational tension at a social, cultural, economic, medical, and political level.
