Daniel looks after the University of Northampton’s Searchlight Archive, a leading resource for the study of the post-war Far Right and Anti-Fascist movements. His research focus is on the dynamics of Radical Right and Anti-Fascist movements and their impact on our wider society.
Daniel’s research currently focuses on the creation and use of identity as a binding and motivating force by these movements, though he has also looked at transnational networking and financing of the Radical Right, interactions between the Radical Right and military forces, and the Radical Right’s use of the environment within their discourse.
Daniel also has a research interest in radical archives, with a special focus on the pedagogies surrounding their use in teaching to both University students and the wider community. Daniel has also engaged in work examining the ethical challenges in using and collecting this material, within teaching and also for researchers.
Daniel is finishing his PhD with the University of Northampton examining the creation and use of identity within the British Far Right and Anti-Fascist movements, focused on John Tyndall’s publication Spearhead and the anti-fascist magazine Searchlight from 1964-1982. Daniel is also a doctoral fellow at the Centre for the Analysis of the Radical Right.
