Having studied history at University College London (UCL) and the London School of Economics (LSE), Charlotte completed her PhD at UCL in 2013, before going on to teach modern British and imperial history at UCL, LSE and the University of York. She is now Lecturer in Twentieth-Century British History at the University of Southampton and in this week's seminar discusses the Labour Party and British overseas development at the end of empire.
