An exploration of the social history of Britain….


Welcome to Melissa Black –  A British History!

My name is Melissa and thank you for reading my blog. I am a PhD candidate at the University of Western Australia and a keen researcher of the History of Emotions. My PhD will explore the turbulent period between 1940 and 1946 and examine how emotions were mobilised to encourage the British public in the continuation of the Imperial project.

I include references for all my blog feeds if you find the topic of interest and would like to do further research yourself. All writing is supported by the utmost research of both primary and secondary sources.

Please share with me your thoughts or comments – I would love to read them!
